As the largest source of humanitarian aid in the world, the European Union helps millions of people in trouble every year. Of course those who are hungry or are victims of disaster need a special treatment. The most popular sport in the world - soccer - is an excellent platform to raise the interest in the needs of people at risk of malnutrition and disasters. The first initiative of Hristo Stoichkov Team - ECHO, FAO and EPFL was a trip to Burkina Faso, where one of the projects funded by ECHO is unfolding to support thousands of starving families. The Legend said: "I witnessed how these organizations save lives and change them for better. They help people survive today and are better prepared for tomorrow."
