Footballer Xavi Hernandez donates yatch

 Madrid: Spain football legend Xavi Hernandez has donated his yacht to auction to raise funds for ProActiva Open Arms (POA), a Spanish NGO that is dedicated to saving the lives of refugees passing through the Mediterranean.
'La Pelopina' is nine metres long, 2.60 metres wide and equipped with a 325CV engine, reports Efe.
POA last month began a new mission aboard the 'Astral', a 30 metre-long medically-equipped yacht, to work together with the maritime authorities and other organisations in the area.
The NGO has saved more than 3,000 people off the coast of Libya.
