Haiti: Soccer is the Universal Language

June 9, 2012

The M.O.T. U13 Minotaurs donated twelve soccer balls and three pumps to the children in La Fond Haiti.  On the first day in La Fond, we cleared the school yard of cinder blocks that were brought in to rebuild  following the earthquake.  On a rocky terrace in the mountains of one of the poorest countries in the western hemisphere, a game of futbol (soccer) broke down barriers. The ball that we played with said “Philadelphia Union” on it and was one of the balls donated by a great group of boys in Middletown, Delaware called the Minotaurs.  So in play, the boys and girls of Haiti were united to the Minotaurs through “the beautiful game.” Mèsi anpil!  Thank you so much!
