Huge contribution for Homeless World Cup fund 07/08/09
"With just four weeks to go to the Homeless World Cup Milan, Team Cambodia are happy to anounce an anonymous supporter has loaned $15,000 to get the team to Milan. HFCA have two years to pay back this loan. Without this donors generousity we would not be able to get to Milan. This money will cover return flights from Phnom Penh to Milan but we still need money for travel insurance, Italian visas, airport taxes and to also ensure the players have money for food/clothes and a little to enjoy their stay in Milan.
We want the best possible opportunity for these young men who have worked so hard to be a part of this once in a life time opportunity. For this to happen, we ask you to make a donation of $10-$20 or more to help these young street soccer players kick their goal. Every dollar counts towards making their dreams come true.
