Thousands of young children living at the Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan will benefit after Kia handed over hundreds of pairs of football boots in Baku to the UEFA Foundation for Children. 

The donation was made during the final leg of the UEFA Europa League Trophy Tour Driven by Kia in Baku, with former UEFA Champions League winner Deco on hand to meet representatives from the Zaatari refugee camp.

"Everyone who has ever played the game – regardless of the level – remembers their first pair of football boots," said Deco. "In donating their boots, fans across Europe are not only giving people a chance to play in better conditions, but they are creating a memory for the recipients that will last a lifetime. 

"To meet representatives from Zaatari and learn about the challenges faced by the young players has been very moving. For Kia and the UEFA Foundation for Children to provide the opportunity for fans to support the refugees is extremely positive."
