The Organization’s effort culminated with the launch of the “Comprehensive Humanitarian Coalition” initiative to help poor and most affected countries by implementing practical projects and field programmes. The Coalition was widely welcomed by many countries, international organizations, and institutions and authorities operating in various fields, including FIFA.
