SC East Bengal’s German midfielder Matti Steinmann donates €10 to Viva con Agua’s Indian drinking water project for every kilometre that he runs in an ISL game.
Besides being a steady performer on the field, the 26-year old is currently participating in a very noble cause. He has launched the #MattiRunsForWater crowd funding campaign on betterplace.org to help German charity Viva con Agua providing fresh drinking water in India.
For every kilometre that he runs this season, the former Germany U-20 international donates €10. Shy and meek as always, he doesn’t wish to publicize his social work. At the same time, however, he emphasizes that being environmentally-conscious is the need of the hour.
