Coles will support efforts to provide emergency relief to India and nearby countries struggling to contain a second wave of the deadly pandemic across the South Asia region, as part of UNICEF Australia’s COVID-19 Crisis Appeal.

As a proud partner of the AFL, Coles will donate $100 for every point scored, or $600 for every goal, during Round Nine of the AFL (Friday 14 to Sunday 16 May) to support UNICEF Australia’s Covid-19 Crisis Appeal.

UNICEF Australia’s COVID-19 Crisis Appeal is raising much needed funds to procure Oxygen Generation Plants to be installed in hospitals to treat seriously ill patients, provide testing equipment in heavily impacted districts, and support the COVID-19 vaccine roll out.

Coles is a proudly diverse company, and this includes many thousands of team members of Indian heritage. We are proud to be providing support through our partnership with the AFL, so we can give all the fans an extra reason to cheer for every point scored during Round Nine.

UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, to build a better world for everyone.

During COVID-19, UNICEF Australia is providing immediate relief and advocating for children to help them recover, rebound, reimagine and create a stronger future.

All points scored commencing with the St Kilda v Geelong match on Friday night will be matched by a $100 donation. Fans of the game can find more information and make their own donations at www.unicef.org.au/covidcrisis
