The Children’s Investment Fund Foundation is a charity dedicated to improving the lives of children. Their donation goes directly to UNICEF to help child malnutrition.

UNICEF is a leading organization in the prevention of problems such as childhood hunger and provides 80% of the world’s life-saving food.

Steven Waugh, interim executive director of the UK Committee for UNICEF, has said: “CIFF’s support is vital and every pound we raise from the campaign is another attack on the pandemic.”

Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, the distribution of food and medical supplies to those in need has been disrupted.

Since 2006, when UNICEF Ambassador Robbie Williams co-founded the concept, Soccer Aid has raised more than £47 million for UNICEF to give children around the world a childhood full of play.

The former England captain recently shared a few photos on Instagram of him posing next to his youngest sons in his freshly dyed pale blonde locks.
