Football has the power to unite and bring hope

For several years, hummel® has been supporting non-profit organisations in Sierre Leone. Organisations that use sport as a mean to convey the importance of – and teach the country’s local communities about human rights, public health and education as they battle the repercussions of the civil war and an Ebola epidemic.

Right now, hummel is working closely together with the organization Football for a New Tomorrow (FANT) on projects that aim to create development and positive change for marginalized groups. FANT primarily uses football to create unity and understanding across religion, class distinctions and social laws.

Together with FANT, we have produced a short documentary titled “The impossible Team”. The documentary seeks to enhance the support for the football team Flying Star Amputees where all the players are victims of civil war amputations.
