Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has set up a fundraising page and pledged financial support to Unicef to help children affected by coronavirus.
Paul Pogba has set up a fundraising page on Facebook to help fight the coronavirus pandemic, and said he will double the amount raised if the target of £27,000 is reached.
“The impact of a large-scale outbreak, especially on poor and vulnerable children, can be immense,” Pogba wrote.
“It’s my birthday and I’m always grateful that me, my family and friends are healthy. Nonetheless, not everybody is in good health right now.
“At times like this we need to come together.”
The money will be used to provide disposable gloves, surgical masks and vented goggles for health workers,.
Pogba’s appeal had raised over £2,000 within a couple of hours of being launched.
