Sergio Ramos, Real Madrid's captain to present UEFA cheque for 100,000 to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) ahead of his side's UEFA Champions League match against Napoli in Madrid on Wednesday.
With handing over the donation, UEFA will mark a decade of helping disabled Afghans and landmine victims.
“I would like to pay tribute to the ICRC, who have been working relentlessly to help landmine victims, many of whom are children. Their programme in Afghanistan, which has been in place for several years, shows that football can offer real hope in challenging times,” said UEFA President Aleksander Čeferin.
“I am glad that UEFA can help this cause, and that the sport we love can have a positive impact on the rehabilitation process of so many people in this troubled region,” he added.
The donation supports the ICRC’s physical rehabilitation programme for landmine victims and other people with disabilities in Afghanistan by providing artificial limbs, physiotherapy, vocational training and access to the rehabilitation centre’s football team.
It's a true privilege for us, and it takes advantage of the global reach that football has to help them in every aspect of their daily lives," Ramos said to UEFA.
"As key figures in this sport we have to do that, we have to be united and help them, so that we can be a source of motivation in their day-to-day lives,"
"We know about the problems that they have, and it's always very satisfying for us to help them out," he added.
