HTIL main goal for this year’s soccer camp was to provide over hundred pairs of soccer shoes, especially turfs that can also be worn to school. This goal was met with the help of several donors.
On shoes handout day – day 5 – it took about 5 hrs to properly fit and handout close to 130 pairs of shoes: Some youths were unfortunate not to get a pair of shoes because of incorrect size specification during pre-camp registration – to say the least, they were dejected. Nevertheless, the fortunate masses were very excited and grateful for their gifts to play soccer and (for several) to eventually wear to school.
Right after receiving their gifts, a few kids geared up in their shoes and went to play. Then later that day, the majority of the kids donned their shoes for the youth all stars games.
