KSrelief Opens Football Academy for Syrian Refugee Children and Provides Aid to Flood-Affected Families


Riyadh – The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief), in collaboration with the Saudi Football Federation, has established a football academy for Syrian refugee children at the Al-Zaatari refugee camp in Jordan.

The academy, inaugurated on Tuesday as reported by the Saudi Press Agency (SPA), aims to provide children with football skills training while offering comprehensive coaching instruction to 25 aspiring coaches.

The football academy is an essential component of the KSrelief volunteering program, which seeks to empower and improve the lives of displaced children. Through the cooperation of the Saudi Football Federation, the academy will deliver high-quality football training to the children, fostering their athletic abilities and promoting teamwork and camaraderie.

Upon successful completion of the training program, the aspiring coaches will be eligible to receive a level C certificate from the International Association Football Federation (FIFA). This certification will enhance their coaching qualifications, enabling them to contribute to the development of football in their communities and potentially pursue professional coaching careers.

The football academy will be supported by a dedicated team of 12 volunteers who will work closely with the children, providing guidance, mentorship, and fostering an inclusive and nurturing environment for their growth and development.

In parallel with the establishment of the football academy, KSrelief, in partnership with Saudi company “Ma’aden,” has extended assistance to flood-affected communities. Together, they provided 110,000 kilograms of fertilizers and agricultural seeds to 1,000 needy families in Malawi. This aid aims to support the affected families in reclaiming their agricultural livelihoods and rebuilding their lives in the aftermath of the devastating floods.

These initiatives fall within the framework of Saudi Arabia’s overarching humanitarian and relief efforts, facilitated through KSrelief. The country’s commitment to helping affected countries and individuals worldwide is exemplified by these programs, which seek to alleviate suffering and provide crucial support to those in need.

The opening of the football academy and the provision of agricultural aid in Malawi underscore Saudi Arabia’s multifaceted approach to humanitarian assistance. By addressing both immediate needs, such as education and sports opportunities for children, as well as long-term development, such as agricultural support, Saudi Arabia aims to empower communities and promote self-sustainability.

The compassionate actions of KSrelief, in collaboration with various partners, serve as a testament to the country’s dedication to alleviating suffering and promoting global well-being. These initiatives not only provide vital assistance but also instill hope, resilience, and a sense of community among those who benefit.

As the football academy begins its operations and the agricultural aid reaches flood-affected families in Malawi, Saudi Arabia’s commitment to humanitarian endeavors continues to make a meaningful impact on the lives of people affected by crises around the world.
