Two weeks ago, we went to Krousar Thmey School to give sports shoes to the players of our blind football team. The players of the Angkor Tiger professional football team were also present for this moment of sharing.
WHY DO THEY NEED SHOES?
The balls used for blind football are filled with small bells so that players can hear them. Therefore this type of adapted balls are heavier. For this reason, it was even more important for players to have suitable sneakers to not hurt themselves when they are shooting the balls.
WHERE DO THE SHOES COME FROM?
It is thanks to two distinct elements that this donation was possible. First, the donation campaign we launched in May achieve its objective very quickly and allowed us to buy enough shoes for all the children in the team.
The second part of our stock of sports shoes was provided by the Siem Reap professional football team: Angkor Tiger. Some of the players came with us at the handover to meet the children and discover the discipline they practice. It was a day full of sharing and happiness.
