Soccer Uniforms Delight Zambian Community League

This afternoon at the end of a an all-day tournament marking the start of the soccer/football season we handed out 12 sets of adult soccer uniforms and 8 sets of youth soccer uniforms (including a ball and a pump) to the local community soccer league teams. 

It is hard to describe in words the sheer exuberance of 20 soccer teams and all their supporters as they received these – dancing and shouting with joy – and then proudly posing for the photos. (Unfortunately I was too busy taking photos to video the scene !)

Our very sincere thanks to the Westaskiwin (Alberta, Canada) Soccer Association for their generous donation of these uniforms and to the team – Vinj, Arnold and Dan – from the Wetaskiwin Community Pentecostal Church for bringing all the uniforms over to Zambia.

This has made a huge impact in the community !
