The game like no other
When we say Soccer Aid for Unicef is like no other game of football, we really mean it. Over the last 12 years, the £29.5 million raised through Soccer Aid has helped Unicef be there for more children than any other humanitarian organisation.
We’ve provided life-saving food, vaccines, clean water and protection from violence to millions of children around the world. But the job’s not done.
Too many babies still don’t get the chance to grow and develop properly, and children still lose their families, homes and schools because of wars and disasters.
This Soccer Aid, with your help, we can make sure that more children get the chance at a happy, healthy and safe childhood.

School at last for Noor Sadia
Last September, aged just 11, Noor Sadia was forced to flee her home in western Myanmar when her village was attacked.
She walked more than 40 miles to find safety.
Right now she lives with her mum and family in Moynerghona refugee camp in Bangladesh. They’re among over a million Rohingya refugees who’ve fled across the border in search of a safe place to call home.
Noor had never been to school before. But when she arrived at the camp she was able to attend classes at a Unicef-supported learning centre. Now, through the centre she’s making friends and is finally getting an opportunity to learn. Watch her story.
