The Leeds United Ladies have generously donated clothing, boots, balls, football kits to an orphanage in Uganda after they have offered their support and following to the team.
The clothes will now be organised and shared amongst children at the orphanage who will now get to use them in their day to day life and it will help them to enjoy playing sports and games after their educational sessions.
The children in the orphanage, who come from various disadvantaged backgrounds, take part in english and maths classes in school and get to enjoy playing football after their school classes.
With more than 240 children as well as staff, the orphanage relies heavily on donations like the one from the Leeds United Ladies.
The orphanage works with vulnerable children in the community to keep them out of trouble, to protect them and to help develop their potential. They pride themselves in helping the orphans to discover and improve their talents through games and sports like football, netball, athletics, music, dance and drama.
Lee Townend, Chairman of the Leeds United Ladies, said: “We are delighted to be able to donate to the orphanage and see them put the clothing and other items to good use.
“After being in contact with the owner of the orphanage, Mwesigwa, for some time, I can see how much they love Leeds United and it is an honour and a privilege that we can send items from players, parents and staff along to them.”
“I would like to thank Mwesigwa and the orphanage for their continued support and we hope they enjoy their donated gifts!”
