Leaving for Liberia

Nov 05, 2020

Thomas Fahn, founder and director of Sadaya International and Sadaya Soccer, a few months ago, wrote and requested soccer gear and equipment as they get prepared to travel to Liberia. Their hope is to ship a container mid-November and have the container filled with soccer gear arrive prior to their own return.

A box of gear will be headed to Liberia for Thomas Fahn and Sadaya United.

The Fahn family have been investing heavily in ministry amongst the youth population of Thomas’ native Liberia, one of the poorest countries in the world. Their original request included the following:

  • 20 size 4 balls
  • 30 size 5 soccer balls
  • 50 adult soccer cleats (sizes 7 – 10.5)
  • 32 youth soccer cleats (sizes 5 – 7)

Soccer Chaplains United was able to fulfill the following:

  • 20 (new) size 5 soccer balls
  • 1 size 5 One World Play ball
  • 1 size 4 One Wold Play ball
  • 2 (new) goalkeeper gloves
  • 6 used soccer balls
  • 1 used futsal ball
  • 30+ soccer cones

Unfortunately, we were not able to provide any soccer cleats for Thomas and Sadaya. Most of our remaining sizes are too big to service Sadaya and their needs.

We look forward to seeing the wonderful pictures and a report from Thomas as they get back to Liberia.
