SOCCER AID FOR UNICEF 2022
HOW YOUR SUPPORT HELPS CHILDREN AROUND THE WORLD
Childhood should be one endless playtime.
We want every child to be in school, learning and playing with their friends. We want every child to have access to safe, clean, water. We want every child to have the health care and nutrition they need to grow up happy, healthy, and able to play.
But there has never been a more challenging time for children. Right now, they are facing conflict, disasters, and other crises in countries around the world. And it is children that are often hardest hit – like the 7.5 million children currently affected by the war in Ukraine. They risk losing their homes, their families, and their schools. They lose the ability to just be kids. UNICEF is delivering “Blue Dot” safe spaces along refugee routes, providing access to water and medical supplies, mental health support, and – even in a crisis like this – a place to rest and play.
The money raised from this year’s game could help UNICEF provide vaccines, fight malnutrition, and provide safe spaces to protect children in times of crisis, helping kids get back to the childhoods they are entitled to.
And it could do so much more to allow kids to simply be kids.
This year, every donation to Soccer Aid for UNICEF – up to £4 million – is being matched by The Power of Nutrition, helping to support the health and nutrition of children around the world. So you’ll make double the difference.
