Popal said in a tweet that Kardashian and her shapewear brand paid for the charter flight, which included teenage players. Radrizzani said “we are honored to have played our part” in the effort in a statement on Twitter.
The effort was also aided by New York rabbi Moshe Margaretten, Popal said.
“Thank you @KimKardashian and @SKIMS from the bottom of my heart for generously donating all the funds for this flight,” Popal tweeted.
Popal, who was recognized by the Global Footballers’ Union FIFPRO for her rescue efforts, also thanked Radrizzani.
“Thank you @andrearadri it is an honor and a privilege to work with you and your amazing and kind people. We are stronger together,” she tweeted.
