The charity’s team played against the team of top Russian officials, led by the Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich.
The game was organised to facilitate a positive change in the attitude towards disability in Russia and to highlight the importance of supporting families raising children with special needs.
Vodianova, whose sister Oksana has cerebral palsy, emphasised the significance of ratification of UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities by Russia in April this year.
“It is a very important step for the country – she said during the press-conference before the game – However the future of millions of people depends on whether and how Russia’s law is amended in order to comply with the Convention”.
Before hitting the pitch the supermodel used the opportunity of the joint press-conference to pass Deputy Prime Minister Dvorkovich her charity’s experts recommendations to the legislators.
