More photos from Africa

Below are more photos from Philip in Africa. The kids are having a blast with your donated soccer balls! Many thanks to all who have made donations!

Letter and photos from Africa

I would like to extend a sincere thank you to you and your staff for sending these soccer balls, we will be handing them out to the children in the town of Dikhil, Djibouti and the village of Kontali, Djibouti. This will no doubt brighten their day enormously, they love soccer and play every day. If it would be okay with you I would like to send you back some pictures of the children when we give them your donations.
Many Many Thanks, Phillip

Soccer Nets donated by Maryland Soccer Foundation, Montgomery County, MD

We are pleased to have received another donation from Maryland Soccer Foundation in Montgomery County, Maryland. Thanks to Executive Director Trish Heffelfinger, we have 27 used soccer goal nets to send to Iraq! Trish responded to a request for nets in the past and remembered us this year when the old nets were replaced.

We have a new contact in Iraq, Donavan, and he has agreed to distribute the nets to areas where needed. Donavan said he has seen fields without soccer nets so they will be appreciated!

Many thanks to Trish Heffelfinger and the Maryland Soccer Foundation for their generous contribution. And thank you Donavan for helping to find homes for the nets in Iraq and going above and beyond your duties!

With appreciation to all our military men and women and their families on this, the 9th anniversary of 9-11.
