FBS VISITS MANIZALES, COLOMBIA
On July 6 and 7, our U13 boys went on an amazing trip to Manizales, Colombia. Beside playing soccer and getting to know this beautiful region, our children had the opportunity to visit Villamaria, Caldas, a residential soccer program with 40 kids that are pursuing the dream of becoming professional soccer players. They also had the opportunity to visit the professional soccer stadium of Once Caldas. Our kids played in the stadium and also played in Barrio Minitas, a very humble community in a sand field. After the game, our kids donated over 10 boxes of new and used uniforms collected with your help. Being around less privileged children not only allows our children to appreciate more their lives, but also creates awareness and hopefully excites them to take social actions. We are not only about soccer but also about the concept of "Tikkun Olam" and working for making the world a better place.
