Do you know what FAIRPLAY Soccer is?
Do you CARE about Equal Opportunities in Sport for ALL?
Would you like to support OESK team of women soccer players that were not allowed to attend our annual European Soccer Championship in Germany?
Great! Here is the STORY behind our INITIATIVE Support Kosovo:
It was the 2nd European Soccer Championship, in a small town in the north of Germany - Prora. 18 countries across Europe were invited to play - but only 17 countries arrived.
A soccer team from Kosovo was missing.
Despite winning the last year´s championship, the team from Kosovo was not allowed to attend the event in Germany.
One week before the tournament the team got a decision from German Embassy in Kosovo – refusing them to enter Germany and attend the tournament. The flight tickets have already been bought (with a subvention by their own government) - now leaving them in a difficult financial situation.
The team of 6 women is now obliged to return the subvention for the flight tickets – a total of 2500€.
The organization they represent is an active, non-profit and non-governmental organization OESK (http://oesk.net/index_en.php) that cannot afford to cover such unexpected costs.
This is why, we, the organizers of the European Soccer Championship - with the help of the participants coming from other countries - have decided to spontaneously help them gather funds to cover the flight costs.
We started at the tournament and gathered - on the spot, in couple of hours - 141,50 €. We know we have a long way to go to reach the 2500€.
So we are turning to YOU - to SUPPORT and DONATE to our cause.
We call-to ALL that stand for Equal Opportunities in Sport – NGOs, governmental institutions, socially responsible companies and individuals – to HELP US COVER the FLIGHT COSTS!
We THANK YOU for support and any financial contribution.
Each and every contribution counts!
FUNDS NEEDED: 2500€
