What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


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.

    Ramadam this summer was a chance for the Football U team to get creative. The weekly schedule became an art session and the team began to learn a different kind of connection working together on this fabulous painting. Back to football now, and the weekly sessions are bringing fun and the camaraderie that it's easy for the us to take for granted. Your support has brought stability to Football U and Football U is bringing stability to these children. Thank you and watch out for exciting news coming soon. Please keep sharing - this matters.

    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.
