David Koning doing the shout outs in Arabic
We move... to unite
Before every football training, our friends (and trainers) from the village do a shout out. All the persons attending the training plus all the countries everybody comes from (including Greece of course) are trumpeted through the bus. Everyone and everything mentioned, has to be repeated by everyone there. Consequently, everyone in the bus gets acknowledgement for themselves and their countries. This is the ultimate way of bonding and raising team spirit!
Normally, our friends and trainers from our campUS start this shout out. You can imagine our surprise, when our coach David (who has been with us for over a year) suddenly did the shoutout..in Arabic! Well, we can write a whole chapter about this experience, sometimes images speak louder than words. Without further introduction, we present to you David Koning naar Lesbos.

#worldrefugeeday: we move to make a difference
1…2…3… Every three seconds, someone flees their home. Worldwide, currently 65,6 million people are displaced, that’s the highest amount ever on record (source: UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency). For comparison: that’s more than the entire population of the United Kingdom and even three times the population of the Netherlands. Let that sink in.
Although we cannot solve the cause of the problem, we can do anything to help. Like Dalai Lama XIV said: “Our prime purpose in life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them”. We’re very grateful for having an amazing network of supporters (volunteers, social media followers, donators & friends and family). Because of every single one of you, we can continue our work, helping our friends and family in the campUS to improve their living conditions.
In honor of world refugee day, we will share some more of our work with you today. Thank you so much for your support and making our work possible!
