The 550,000 euros that was raised by 'Champions for Life' will now be redirected to various causes. The generosity of all those who were kind enough to take part in the charity event will be distributed among four Fundación Fútbol Profesional projects and, mainly and in collaboration with UNICEF, those affected by typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
Some of the money will go towards the Charity Project for the Hogar de Nazaret, a shelter for the most vulnerable in the Puerto Maldonado region, where children can find food, hygiene, education and healthcare.
The Fundación SOS Himalaya, created by Spanish mountaineer Iñaki Ochoa de Olza, will also benefit from the generosity of football fans. Thanks to the donation they will continue to work on a school in Nepal and will be able to rebuild two other schools for more than 500 children in the area.
Children of Bangassou in the Central African Republic, the second poorest and most dangerous country in the world, will benefit from social and humanitarian aid that, thanks to the help received from 'Champions for Life', the Fundación Bangassou will be able to continue providing.
Also, with financial help from the LFP, the charity olVIDAdos will provide food aid and grants to around 140 children throughout the school year (ten months).
The total amount going towards LFP social projects will be 95,000 euros, while the rest of the money raised by 'Champions for Life' will be used by UNICEF to help the emergency efforts in the Philippines.
