Newly appointed Kerala Blasters FC coach Kibu Vicuna, who recently led Mohun Bagan to their second I-League title, has initiated a fundraiser, along with his partner Kasia Biel, to help cyclone Amphan-hit West Bengal.

It was Kasia who started the initiative when she posted a video a couple of days back asking people of the state to stay strong. She also began a challenge wherein she asked people to draw "little houses", as a representation of rebuilding Bengal.

Vicuna accepted his partner's challenge, as he wrote on his Facebook page: "I accept the Challenge of Kasia Biel. All our thoughts and heart is with our people in Kolkata and West Bengal. I nominate Tomek Tchórz , Paulius Ragauskas and Mariners' Base Camp. Draw a house, add donation link and send some money to help our friends. #rebuildbengal."

The Spanish coach also appended the link to contribute money to West Bengal government's emergency relief fund and attached a picture of a house he has drawn.


East Bengal coach Mario Rivera as well as former Mohun Bagan players Sony Norde and Omar Elhussieny have also shared messages of support for the people of Bengal on social media platforms.
