Kylian Mbappé to donate all his World Cup winnings to children’s charity

 

When dealing with the reported 500,000-US-dollar award from the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the newly minted World Cup winner Kylian Mbappé has decided to donate all of this to

Premiers de Cordée, a charity that offers sporting opportunities to children who are hospitalized or have disabilities, which is based at the Stade de France.

Born in Bondy, a suburb area of Paris, Kylian Mbappé is from a mixed family: his father is from Cameroon, and his mother is from Algeria. The young boy gained all his football enlightenment on the street there.

The 19-year-old footballer has been working with Premiers de Cordée for around a year, and his effort helps children to feel able to move, practice sports and keep up the morale to get out and realize their dreams.

Other top-class footballing talents, such as Paul Pogba, N’Golo Kante, Blaise Matuidi, Anthony Martial, Kingsley Coman and Algerian Riyad Mahrez were all either born, raised or had their footballing educations in the Ile-de-France.

According to CNN, the charity confirmed that they will receive Mbappé’s winnings in September.

Mbappé seems to have inspired other members of France’s team. According to L’Equipe, some players are donating part of their earnings to fund an educational trip to Russia for 25 students of the Jean-Renoir College in Bondy.
