The defender tweeted, “So happy to announce that Majanilsson & I have become part of the UNICEF Sverige family in Sweden.
“Being in this position makes me incredibly proud. What we can do for others now is more important than ever. ‘
The UNICEF Sverige organization wants to help people who are trapped in poverty or in need of desperate help.
This need for help has increased around the world recently following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
More than 239,000 people worldwide have died from the virus with more than three million cases.
Lindelof has previously participated in the fundraising efforts for UNICEF, as Manchester United recently hosted a charity gala in November last year to raise money for the organization and the Manchester United Foundation.

The central defender has become a fixture at Manchester United this season, alongside Harry Maguire at the heart of the Red Devils’ defense.
Before the football was put on hold due to the coronavirus, the Swedish defender played 35 games in all competitions.
