The Executive Committee of CAF, chaired by President and Hall of Famer Issa Hayatou has ratified a budget for the running of the Issa Hayatou Foundation. The Foundation was set up and endorsed at the last General Assembly of CAF in Marrakech, Morocco in March 2013, and a budget for running it was tabled before the Executive Committee in Cairo last week.

In the course of time, a management team will be set up to administer the day-to-day running of the Foundation, whose primary objective is to provide for needy ex-footballers in the area of welfare, healthcare and educational support for their children, where needed.
