Description
The fact that we receive €100,000 once a year based on the vote on UEFA.com for the Team of the Year is very important for the ICRC. It's important because we can spend that €100,000 on a very specific programme in Afghanistan, which aims at "rebuilding" people. The money is spent on doing building and repairing prosthetics. Nowadays, making a prosthetic for a kid is difficult, using very complicated material, it must last in time but a child grows up very fast, you have to change his prosthetics, you have to follow up on him during all his life. The €100,000 allows us to work in the long term, it's crucial. The fact that it was the Team of the Year chosen by people, the fact of it being UEFA, that's something very strong as well, it's not only about the money.
