Greetings and appreciation from ICESCO, FIFA and sports stars to the champions of the health sectors allover the world

In recognition of the efforts of healthcare heroes around the globe who stand on the frontline to shield human societies from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Islamic World Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ICESCO) and the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) agreed to reproduce a video where former and present football players express their thanks and appreciation to healthcare workers for their outstanding work.In this rare video appearance, male and female famous world football stars, notably Pelé, Maradona, Ronaldo, David Beckham, Kaká, Marta, Marco van Basten, Zinédine Zidane, Park Ji-sung, Yaya Touré, Lucy Bronze, Samuel Eto’o, Fabio Cannavaro and many others, are warmly applauding healthcare workers for their work to help citizens and their sacrifices to stem the risks of COVID-19 spread.In parallel with the applauses, a brief caption expresses gratitude and appreciation to all healthcare workers and professionals who work like true heroes.It is worth noting that, since the beginning of COVID-19 pandemic, ICESCO has launched a number of practical initiatives, programmes and projects to support the global anti-COVID-19 efforts and help Member States overcome its adverse repercussions. The Organization culminated its efforts with the launch of the “Comprehensive Humanitarian Coalition” initiative to help poor and most affected countries by implementing practical projects and field programmes in these countries.The Coalition was widely welcome by many countries, international organizations, and specialized institutions and authorities, including FIFA. The final declaration of the Extraordinary Virtual Conference of Education Ministers of ICESCO Member States, held on 14 may 2020 with the participation of 43 Member States and 12 international organizations under the theme “Education systems in the face of crises and emergencies (COVID-19)”, reaffirmed its support to the Coalition and called on countries and governmental and non-governmental organizations, donors and the private sector to contribute to its success.
