Can you please help the Afghan Women’s Development Football Team

The FSA (Football Supporters Association) have been working with a committee of stakeholders to support the arrival of the Afghan Women’s Development football team in the UK.  

The team has now arrived in the UK and they require some additional support with your help! 

One way the FSA has committed to helping initially is through the sharing of information on what the players and their families need.  There are two pressing things as it stands:
– Warm clothing and shoes
– Funds to assist with living expenses – including food and medical needs. 

Therefore the FSA are asking clubs to support donations to the just giving page and/or to the clothing bank that has been set up. 

If you would like to donate funds please do so via this page:
Afghan Girls’ Journey to Freedom: the Next Chapter – JustGiving

If you can/would like to donate warm clothing and shoes please donate to:
Play for Change, Elland Road, Beeston, Leeds LS11 0ES
