Story

Hundreds of thousands of refugee children live in camps in the Bekaa valley in Lebanon with limited schooling, little structure and nothing at all to do. There are no facilities for sport, so football training gives them a hobby and brings a sense of normality and fun. I've lived in Lebanon for four years, and seen that nothing changes for them. 'Football United' is bringing them the chance to play and be a team.

    Thank you for the huge support, Football United is thriving with your help, & the founder, Roman St Clair and his family, were in the Bekaa Valley last week talking to international charity War Child about how Football U can be sustained. Our work , even though it's small scale, is making a difference. Football is therapy, it's teamwork, it's joyful. Refugee children have so little, we want to reach their sisters & friends. Help us spread the word: any donation helps with the boots, pitch hire & the future for Football U. Thank you.
