Drogba To Star In Match Against Poverty

Chelsea’s Ivoirian striker, Didier Drogba, has recently become the latest star to join the charity match against poverty on the 20th of April - a fundraiser that has been backed by UEFA for 12 consecutive years.

Drogba is an ambassador of the United Nations Development Programme, and will team up with several star players, who will play against an all-star Saint-Ettienne team, where two-thirds of the money raised will go towards boosting Ebola recovery efforts in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

Drogba will play for the ‘Ronaldo, Zidane & Friends Team', alongside other stars like Clarence Seedorf, Edwin van der Sar, Éric Abidal, Christian Karembeu, and Cafu.

The retired international has always been keen on fighting against poverty and disease, and he is also famous for owning his own charity, called the ‘Didier Drogba Foundation’.

Do you admire Drogba for what he is doing for charity?
