Since then, fourteen more SOS Children’s Villages have been built, the latest being at Igarussu in the north-east of Brazil which opened in 2007.

“6 villages for 2006”, SOS Children’s Villages’ World Cup campaign, has been given another welcome boost from exciting young band Air Hammer through donations from its World Cup anthem ‘Korea Korea’.

The song, with its rousing classical and football terrace chorus, is the West London band’s chosen anthem for this summer’s World Cup. Having heard about the “6 villages for 2006” campaign, Air Hammer members Ben Smith and Aaron Elvis decided to donate all proceeds from the song’s downloads to the campaign and support SOS Children’s global campaign to support orphaned and abandoned children.

“I cannot think of a more appropriate way in which to use this song we have recorded. SOS Children is a great charity and I could not have wished to find an organisation more closely linked to the World Cup” said, Ben of the band.
