    A little exercise goes a long way

    DAY 362

    We Heart Football

    It seems like no matter where we are, everyone loves football.

    In a refugee or displaced persons camp, football (or soccer) provides a much-needed outlet for young people. All that’s needed, really, is some flat open ground and a soccer ball. And then football can offer hours of exercise. And joy in situations where joy and hope can sometimes be in short supply.

    So, when the youth leaders in Kalma Camp told us they needed soccer balls to distribute to all of Kalma’s soccer teams – we were on board. Our team headed to the market to purchase as many balls as we could with our daily change budget.

    Such a small price for what will provide countless hours of excitement and entertainment for so many.
