Thursday, January 11, 2018

The Gambia National Paralympic Committee (NPC) wheelchair athletes have received extra boost for their game through the generosity of a Gambian soccer star Ebrima Sohna.

Every day, many Gambian Sports Associations struggle for funding assistance to get their activities going and to improve their game. Sohna’s support included 25 training bags on his focus to help the NPC sports teams.

The assistance is expected to provide and create accessible and affordability for sports men and women in need.

Sohna visited the team’s training in December last and surprised them with a cash donation of ten thousand dalasi. Following that visit he also promised them support in the future.

Mr. Sohna told sports journalists that it was a natural fit for him to help the disability family. Meanwhile, the NPC wheelchair team competes with team from the sub-region.
