Mastercard Donates 1.4 Million Meals to Fight Hunger in 2018

We at Mastercard have heard the comments about our campaign in Latin America featuring our brand ambassadors Messi and Neymar Jr. in support of the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP).  We don’t want fans, players or anyone to lose focus on the critical issue of hunger and our efforts to raise support for this cause. Based on the feedback, we are adjusting the campaign to replace the 10,000 meals donation per goal by Messi and Neymar Jr. with a contribution of one million meals in 2018.  This is in addition to 400K meals we have already donated as part of the campaign. We want to reinforce that Mastercard’s global commitment of delivering 100 million meals by the end of this year goes beyond any one campaign.  We are grateful to our brand ambassadors who have been playing a critical role in helping us raise awareness of the cause.  Mastercard will continue to be one of the many players engaged in reversing the cycle of poverty worldwide.
