Roman Abramovich has helped make a group of 30 children’s dreams come true by sending them to the World Cup in Russia.

The media have opted to focus on the negatives surrounding Abramovich recently. The Russian lost his visa which allowed him to live and work in the U.K. He subsequently secured Israeli citizenship, but that will only allow him to live in the country for six-months at a time.

Following the loss of his visa, the plans to redevelop Stamford Bridge have been put on hold. Abramovich clearly has little interest in investing £1billion into a country that doesn’t want him there – which is fair enough.

Abramovich can put his cash to better use, and he has. According to CNN, the Chelsea owner donated a six-figure sum to the ‘Fulfilling Dreams’ charity, which is based in Israel.

The charity has taken a group of 30 seriously ill children to the World Cup in Russia as a result of generous donations made by Abramovich and other donors.

We don’t imagine this report will be as widely reporting in the English press as much of the other Abramovich related news that has broken in recent weeks…
