The Khayelitsha Schools Football Association in partnership with The Sunflower Fund is about to kicked off their second annual U/19 Soccer Tournament. The air was electrifying around the event and all youth involved in the tournament played with vigour and displayed impeccable talent, making the day memorable and successful.
This year 16 schools are participating, with Zola High School from the Bongweni area entering the tournament as the defending champions and soared to the top of the tournament, becoming the 2016 champions once again. The Sunflower Fund commends the youth of Khayelitsha, who are doing an excellent job in creating awareness about leukaemia and other blood related disorders through the medium of soccer.
The Sunflower Fund educates and registers stem cell donors, to grow a healthy, effective and ethnically diverse South African Bone Marrow Registry of committed donors, with funds raised being used to cover the testing costs. The Sunflower Fund believes that no one should die because there is no match.
Hope Begins with You!
