Football is massive in Sierra Leone. It is a healthy distraction from all the hardships that young people face, and it also bring communities together. There is a very strong following of the Premier League in England and all the matches are shown live.
For several years HelpMadina have been distributing football kit and equipment that has been donated by professional and amateur football clubs. The list of donors is long, but includes Cheltenham and Swindon Town, Everton, Watford, Forest Green Rovers, Fairford and even Aresenal. These donations have helped many small village teams in the Madina area.
In addition to kit, HelpMadina have assisted with providing football coaching and the planning of tournaments.
