We Are Here FC in Almere

Wereldhuis is a supporter of We Are Here FC, two of our own volunteers are members of the team and the people of We Are Here know that the Wereldhuis is a welcoming place for them. Sports can help to relax, create a positive focus, especially in these stressful times. A day before the tournament 6 of the team members were evicted from the Vluchtgebouw, so they could not join the tournament in Almere. But the other team members were present to show their resilience and to talk about their situation.

Sadly, one of the (guest) players got injured during the tournament. Iwan Leeuwin, ‘motor’ behind the participation of WAHFC in this tournament brought the player back to the AZC in Almere.

WAHFC did not reach the quarter finals, but they definitely made an impression. We would like to thank Accent Sports and Iwan and Glen Leeuwin, for their support. Thank you very much for all the donations, made by concerned people of Almere, the organisation and the referees!
