The organisation also coordinates disability awareness campaigns for schools and businesses.

After consulting with his entourage, Mbappe decided his World Cup premiums could serve a better purpose going to the charity, according to L’Equipe.

 

“Kylian, he’s a great person,” Sebastien Ruffin, general manager of Premiers de Cordee, told Le Parisien. “When his schedule allows it, he intervenes for us with pleasure. He has a very good [relationship] with children, he always finds the right [words] to encourage them. I sometimes even feel that [he] takes more pleasure to play with the kids than the kids themselves.”
