REHOBOTH, 03 MAY (NAMPA) – Southern Stream First Division campaigners Young Brazilians Football Club from Karasburg on Tuesday held a clean-up campaign at the town as part of their social responsibility.
The team cleaned the Westerkim and Lordsville areas of the town.
Speaking to Nampa on Wednesday, Young Brazilians’ team manager, Kullus Simboya said community service is part of the team’s constitution and they have an activity each year.
“We are not only about playing football on the pitch; there are responsibilities the team engages in. We identify projects to focus on and give back to our community,” Simboya remarked.
She said they were assisted by the town council with black refuse bags for their campaign as they wanted to motivate the community to take care of their environment.
“The nationwide clean-up campaign is on its way and we wanted to raise awareness so they can be part of the campaign and take ownership in keeping our beautiful town clean. We believe that what we did will encourage other members of Karasburg to be part of the campaign,” Simboya noted.
She said other activities that fall under their social responsibility include the feeding of the elderly and underprivileged children at the end of each year with the support of their sponsors, Touchdown Fishing Company.
The clean-up campaign concluded with a football match between Tornados and Young Brazilians, with Young Brazilians winning 16-1.
