The UEFA Foundation for Children has announced plans to contribute to the Common Goal COVID-19 Response Fund.

The newly-launched initiative will fund charities focused on helping children who live in the world’s worst-hit communities, including frontlines of conflict zones, UEFA posted on its official website.

The Foundation, which sponsors dozens of humanitarian and development projects across the globe, is the first sports institution to support the Response Fund set up on Tuesday by Common Goal.

The Common Goal is a group of 150 players, managers, and leaders who have pledged one percent of their annual earnings from football to charities working with some of the world’s most vulnerable children.
