Went to an orphanage yesterday, the kids are knackering, all they want is to hug you and pick you up, they all squueze my arms and call me huge ( massive ego boost!) Within 20mins i was sweating buckets from lifting them up and down, couldnt have done it all day.
We went to a aids foundation call ubuntu – check them out online, huge organisation, just had new building built it is seriously impressive, the guy called banks was a legend in 10 years he has created a multi million pound centre for hiv awareness and helping children enjoy themselves etc.
We went around the townships yesterday aswell, the poverty is insane. Newer housing is being built but it is not much bigger than our garden shed with the mower in, it is so hot in them aswell i couldnt hack it.
We played 3 hours of five a side last night against some of the township older lads, indoors! I honestly have never sweated so much, and they were barely breaking sweat. Our team won most of the games, helped that we had an ex aston villa academy defender playing, he was very handy!
We have been doing lots of prep for sports coaching, which start today – except it is raining so apparently it might not happen!
Off to the cricket on friday – south africa v india should be a good game!
Food basic but substanial which is gd as so active.
It’s a really great charity aswell, run by a lot of volunteeers it brings sports into the township schools as it is not on their curriculum.
