Nadiem Amiri supports World Vision campaign in Afghanistan

Bayer 04 supports the social commitment of Werkself players as a matter of course and that includes the current campaign by Nadiem Amiri for World Vision. The 26-year-old is acting in the name of the international aid organisation for people in need in Afghanistan, his parents native country.

In a video message, the midfielder appears for donations, which he has also personally supported. "I'm happy that I grew up in Germany. At the same time, it hurts my heart to see how people are suffering in Afghanistan," explained Nadiem Amiri.

His family fled to Germany from Afghanistan in the 1980s. "I'd just like to help and do some good for my family's fellow countrymen and women. My father was there recently and he explained the current situation to me in detail.”

The Situation in Afghanistan

In the Asian country, from where Nadiem Amiri's family fled, a large part of the population lives in difficult to access mountainous regions and therefore often receive no medical help in times of ill health. The loss of employment opportunities, increasing food prices and the coronavirus pandemic have presented huge challenges for the people to provide the very basics to live. Currently every third inhabitant of Afghanistan is dependent on humanitarian aid. The start of cold weather and the particularly long winters only increase the plight of the Afghan people. There is often a lack of basic items: A warming blanket and a hygiene package can help to ease the hardship. Both are contained in the 'Care package Afghanistan'.

On World Vision:

World Vision is an international aid organisation that has dedicated itself to targeted development work for over 70 years and supports children and their families in the battle against poverty and hunger in almost 100 countries.
