A joint initiative by the Georgian Football Federation and the Georgian national team players will see humanitarian aid being sent to Ukraine.
The aid package for the Ukrainian population includes first aid kits, medical equipment and medicine, as well as baby food and various other products.
“We stand beside the people of Ukraine, who are currently in desperate need of our help and support. As part of the joint initiative by GFF and the Georgian national team players, we are sending humanitarian aid to Ukraine.
From the very beginning, we have expressed our solidarity and support for Ukraine. We have been communicating with our colleagues from the Football Association of Ukraine. Individual footballers playing in Georgia and abroad have expressed their own position and support.
Football is truly a special game. It is more than 90 minutes, and more than the score at the end of the match. Our actions reflect this sentiment, and we will continue to stand beside our friends, colleagues and other people in Ukraine in the future” – Levan Kobiashvili, GFF President.
“We as players are distraught by what is happening in Ukraine. We would like to express our support for the Ukrainian people. We hope that the war will soon be over and people can return to normal life, which will be very difficult for them.
We hope that this initiative by our team and GFF can play at least a small role in supporting the people of Ukraine” – Guram Kashia, Georgian national team player.
