Community support for Hope Australia Soccer Academy

This week we were able to support the work of Beram Kumar & the Hope Australia Soccer Academy (HASA).
HASA is a not-for-profit community organisation that brings Australians together through football. The program specifically targets new Australians, refugees & those who find it difficult to access social & sporting opportunities. Football clinics are provided by a team of highly qualified people, including former Brazilian national team players, who have relocated out here to support the work of HASA. The team also go into other countries using football as a means of community engagement, often following natural disaster or in places devastated by famine or conflict.
We were able to provide around 60 new (or barely used) quality training balls along with some other equipment to support this great community initiative.
Our TD (Nathan Claridge) & Beram (HASA) are continuing to explore further ways to partner together & build on this initial support.
Well done to Beram & his team on an incredible initiative. We are proud to be able to support you!
