The proceeds will provide humanitarian and emergency aid, which supports and provides opportunities for the integration and development of displaced children and families.

Commenting on ECA’s initial donations, ECA chairman, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, said: “I am also very proud to announce that ECA will make available an initial €1 million financial contribution in supporting our member’s efforts in assisting the Ukrainian people.”

Members clubs in countries with increased refugee numbers have been proactively providing support and resources, with ECA funds being distributed by the UEFA Foundation to different charitable projects.
