Luka Modric: From Refugee to the World Cup

In the excitement of the World Cup, one of our favorite moments was learning of superstar Luka Modrić‘s journey from homeless refugee to captain of Croatia on the largest stage.

Despite his team’s loss in the final stage against a strong French team, Luka and the Croatian players showed tenacity and heart throughout the World Cup. We hope that this and other stories can give hope to refugees currently enduring hardship.

Thank you to Luka for providing inspiration, and congratulations to France on winning the 2018 FIFA World Cup!
