Barcelona soccer club to Fund Help for Children with AIDS

The U.N. children's agency, UNICEF and the Barcelona soccer club announced a plan on Thursday wherein the team has agreed to donate $1.9 million a year over the next five years to help the underprivileged children with AIDS in developing countries.

Their first installment will go towards the AIDS programs in Swaziland, a poverty stricken country in southern Africa where around 40 percent of adults are infected with HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

The club's aid will go towards funding efforts to prevent mother-to-child transmission and also infection among adolescents as well as the support and care for children orphaned by the disease.

The agreement also includes allowing the Spanish and European champion's scarlet and blue jersey to have UNICEF's logo on its front, the first time in the club's 107-year history when such an arrangement has been allowed.
