The Barça team with the special campaign t-shirt / MIGUEL RUIZ - FCB

The campaign ‘Tant se val d’on venim’ to help the refugees who are currently arriving in Europe received the support on Sunday of the Barça fans and members who came to see the game between the blaugranes and Levante. The initiative put together by the FC Barcelona Foundation in collaboration with the Red Cross saw various events to raise awareness about the desperate situation of those who have been forced to leave their countries due to conflicts in the Middle East.

The campaign has three main components – raising money, raising awareness and integration – and it has been a fundamental part of the day at Camp Nou. In the area surrounding Camp Nou the fans and members were able to find special stands set by the Red Cross distributing information and there were also points around the ground where it was possible to donate money.

Before the game the Barça players were the main protagonists given their important role in the campaign. On the video screen inside the stadium a video involving Luis Enrique, Iniesta, Messi, Neymar, Piqué and Sergio Busquets was projected that takes as its inspiration the name of the initiative, ‘Tant se val d’on venim’ that is part of the Barça anthem. The blaugrana players took the field before the game wearing special t-shirts in support of the Foundation’s campaign to help publicise the initiative. The Levante players themselves wore t-shirts in support of the Professional Football League’s collaboration with UNICEF in favour of the refugees which also has the support of FC Barcelona.

Collaborating organisations in the Director’s Box

In the President Suñol box the campaign was also visible. President Josep Maria Bartomeu and vice president Jordi Cardoner came together with different organisations collaborating in the campaign, the vice president of the Government of the Generalitat de Catalunya and Councillor on Social Welfare and Family, Neus Munté; the first Deputy Mayor of Barcelona City Council, Gerard Pisarello; the second Deputy, Laia Ortiz; the president of the Red Cross in Catalonia, Antoni Aguilera; the president of the Red Cross Barcelona, Josep Quitet; the coordinator of the Red Cross in Catalonia, Enric Morist and the member of the Fundació Districte 11, Manel Vila.

The campaign is here to stay and activities and fund raising (on Match Days at Camp Nou, Palau Blaugrana and the Miniestadi) as well as raising awareness about the new arrivals in Catalonia will continue until the January of next year with the help of the supporters’ clubs in Catalonia.
