The PSG star unveiled in late January his new charity called “Inspired by KM”, to which he often pays part of his annual salary.
Uk Sun reports that the 21-year-old star unveiled his charitable foundation on January 21 in the presence of a crowd of more than 300 people. He said at the opening ceremony that he would use the new foundation to help 98 children in the French capital realize their dreams.

“We will support them until their professional life begins. I’m just trying to lend a hand to the kids and make them smile. “
The 2018 World Cup champion had already explained that he donates to charities because he sees the need to help people who are in extreme poverty.
“Many people suffer, many are sick. For people like us, helping others is not a big thing. “
The Frenchman had donated all of his match costs and bonuses from the World Cup, which would amount to 470,000 euros, to a charity organization for children.
Last year, he donated 30,000 euros to help fund a private search for the missing plane of Emiliano Sala.
