Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has used his Twitter account to share a public declaration of support for charity Viva For Life, as they bid to raise money for young children living below the poverty line in his native Belgium.

Fellaini is a sponsor of an organisation known as CAP48, who have spent more than 50 years looking to promote the issue of youth welfare and actively seek ways to help disadvantaged children improve their situation.

The 26-year-old has now used his considerable reach on social media to spread the word that Cap48 are part of the 'Viva For Life' initiative, a collaborative effort helping to not only raise money through fundraisers but ensure it is distributed properly and gets to the places it can be most effective.

Fellaini tweeted last night: "As a sponsor of CAP48, I wish good luck @VivaForLife. Support VFL!"

United's £27.5m summer signing has more than 641,000 followers on Twitter and 816,00 Facebook fans, ensuring that the worthy cause in his home nation gets global recognition online.
