Special Olympics: Training in Liberia

In our recently newsletter we announced that a small team from Liberia would take part in the Special Olympics in Abu Dhabi this Spring. This would be the first time that Liberia has ever entered a team in this landmark occasion, a multi-sports event for children with intellectual disabilities.

The Fund has supported this initiative in a small way to help these young children train for the event and in supporting them on their return, a key pre-requisite of entering a team in the Olympics.

Training is under way in earnest as you can see from the pictures below and we wish the team every success in March.
