Munich  –  German football giants Bayern Munich have donated 100,000 Euros (113,000 dollars) to recent flood in southern Germany, the club announced Wednesday.

Bayern stated the city council of the especially hard-hit district Rottal-Inn would decide where the money would be directed.

The Bayern Board Chairman, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, said at a news conference in Munich that “we want to express solidarity with the people in Lower Bavaria affected by this and help them in their time of need.”

The floods Thursday in the region cost seven people their lives, while no fewer than 1,000 people in the Simbach am Inn community lost their homes. (dpa/NAN)
