UEFA Foundation for Children presents projects to the UEFA Congress in Helsinki

UEFA Foundation for children is presenting to the 41th ordinary UEFA Congress in Helsinki a video that report about the work that has been achieved since 2 years, and how football can give back to society and contribute to improve lives of kids in difficult situation.

In fact, a few years ago, on 26 March 2014, at the 38th Ordinary UEFA Congress in Astana, Michel Platini stressed UEFA’s desire to enable more people to benefit from football’s role in society. Thanks to the support of the UEFA Executive Committee and the approval of UEFA’s member associations at that Congress that day, UEFA created an independent foundation that uses sport to support humanitarian projects linked to children’s rights in areas such as health, education and integration. UEFA Foundation for children was formally established and began operating the 24th of April 2015.
