UEFA To Donate 100,000 Euros To Disabled Afghans
Sergio Ramos, Real Madrid’s captain, will hand over a UEFA donation of €100,000 ($106,000 USD) to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) ahead of Real’s Champions League match against Napoli on Wednesday night.
The money will go towards helping disabled Afghans.
Having received the most votes in 2016's UEFA Team of the Year, the captain of Real is to take on the responsibility.
This year's donation marks a decade of UEFA's support of the charity, with the money earmarked for the provision of artificial limbs, physiotherapy and vocational training for landmine victims and people with disabilities in Afghanistan.
"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 told UEFA.
"As key figures in this sport, we have to do that and 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 said.
