Juan Martin del Potro joined UNICEF Argentina on a visit to the children’s home, Hogar Marquez de La Plata, where he spent time getting to know the youths. 

In between games of table tennis, the 2009 US Open champion answered their tennis-related questions and listened to their personal stories, goals and dreams. He also recorded a video for “A Sun for the Children” campaign, a TV show that helps raise funds for UNICEF.

“They do a great job here. I really want to thank the whole team and the kids for the time we spent today,” said del Potro.

Hogar Márquez assists children and teenagers without parental care, employing a comprehensive method that helps each cope with the autonomy of adulthood.
