Ludogorets and 54 European clubs, including Barcelona, Celtic, Juventus, Inter, Roma, and Chelsea, will join the ‘Football Cares’ which aims to find vulnerable young people. It is being run by the International Centre for Missing and Exploited Children (ICMEC) and is supported by the ECA. The Bulgarian champion and the rest of the clubs will use their social media channels to stream videos of children still missing all over the world. This will happen on International Missing Children’s Day, the 25th of May.
‘We are all proud to be teaming up with ICMEC, an organization that has done incredible work in helping vulnerable young people all over the world for over two decades, to show that ‘Football Cares’ on International Missing Children’s Day’, said Charlie Marshall, Chief Executive Officer at ECA.
“More than a million children are reported missing each year’, added Bob Cunningham, Chief Executive Officer at ICMEC. ‘On International Missing Children’s Day 2020, we are honored to have the support of the ECA members. With the huge following and global reach that these clubs boast, we hope that someone might recognize one of the missing children shown in the videos so they can be reunited with their loved ones.’
