Goals 4 Water - Fundraising campaign with the Neven Subotic Foundation

About the Neven Subotic Foundation

In 2012, professional football player Neven Subotic founded the "Neven Subotic Foundation" named after him. The foundation is committed to providing as many people as possible with access to clean water in Ethiopia. Since its foundation, more than 200 wells have been built. We support the campaign GOALS 4 WATER, which was initiated by BALLFREUNDE and the foundation. 100% of the donations go directly to the projects, as Neven Subotic privately finances the entire administrative costs of the foundation.
