UK AID MATCH

 

From 2018 to 2020, donations to Soccer Aid for UNICEF were matched by the UK Government. Meet some of the families and communities who are still seeing the life-changing impact of the funding:

ONE TAP TO CHANGE A COMMUNITY:

Until last year, Steven had wake up early every day and travel long distances to fetch water from the local stream so that his family could drink and wash. “I used to miss classes due to lack of clean water” says Steven. “I was usually sickly and stricken by preventable diseases.” Steven has been going to the children’s corner in Goneko Village, Malawi, for 3 years. Here, he shows how recreational kits funded by UNICEF are helping kids in his community to learn and play.

With funds raised through Soccer Aid and the UK government, UNICEF has installed a new water tap in the village so that kids visiting the children’s corner have easy access to safe, clean water. So that they can get back to the education and the healthy childhoods they are entitled to.

NTSOAKI’S STORY:

In 2018 UK Aid Match helped to fund maternal and neonatal programmes in Lesotho, which helped Ntsoaki learn best practice skills to care for her son. She now gives back by teaching others in the community.
