Soccer helps kids
In Ukraine, a war is raging, that causes great suffering for millions of people. Suffering that affects not only adults, but also many children who came to Germany traumatized and in dire need of help.
This terrible injustice can’t leave us cold. But it must not give us feelings of powerlessness, because we can indeed help. Even if we can’t stop the war, we can and have to be there for our neighbors from Ukraine as best as we can and also care for the many psychological wounds.
What we do
We offer a free soccer training for children from Ukraine in Munich, which is led by professional soccer coaches. This training is an attempt to provide immediate help against the many terrible experiences, thoughts and feelings. Regular training brings a little variety to lives, a sense of achievement and also physical activity, which releases happiness hormones.
The coaches of the Grünwald football school are supported by Vitaliy Reva. He is a goalkeeper in the second league and U21 national coach of Ukraine, who himself also had to flee.
Where & when
The first training sessions will take place at the sports facility right next to the accommodation for refugees, which is run by Johanniter-Unfall-Hilfe e.V.. In the future, the training sessions will be held on the grounds of the Fussballschule Grünwald and at other locations in Munich.
We will be able to train two groups of 20 children each and the training takes place from Monday to Friday from 10 am to 12 am.
What you can do
Let’s help quickly. Let’s be gracious for our own lives, that we can lead in peace right now. And that we’re spared of all the atrocities that war brings. Let’s give the little ones a little bit of a normal life who have been torn from their lives before and literally lost everything.
We are extremely grateful for each and every supporter. In order to implement the campaign, we are still looking for supporters who want to participate either financially – or in the form of food and soccer equipment such as shoes, clothing or soccer balls. There is also the possibility to take over the official sponsorship of a whole training day with a contribution of 100 Euros.
