Vivianne Miedema, striker for Arsenal and the Dutch women’s national soccer team, believes that sport and play are powerful tools to build resilience and help children overcome the challenges of their situation. She is committed to the international organization War Child.
As a War Child ambassador, Vivianne Miedema will participate in fundraising activities to support children affected by armed conflict. She will also participate in a run organized by War Child Holland to encourage schoolchildren in the Netherlands to raise money for the organization.
War Child is an international organization dedicated to helping children affected by war. The organization uses sports and play to help children overcome the trauma of armed conflict. It provides structured activities to help children feel like children again and overcome the trauma of violence and conflict.
Through sport and play, War Child provides children with emotional support and a sense of stability, enabling them to develop the resilience they need to cope with stressors such as bullying, anger, and fear.
Vivianne has previously expressed her commitment to children and her responsibility to support the most vulnerable. Her involvement with the organization reinforces her role as a role model and gives visibility to the organization and its work. War Child will be able to reach more children and help build a world where children are not affected by war.
Vivianne’s appointment as a War Child Ambassador will draw attention to the needs of war-affected children… and inspire others to support this organization!
