Amadu Jah the elder brother of the Deputy Youths and Sports Minister Algassimu Jah, who lives in Sweden has donated to the Single Leg Amputee Social Club a number of items to boost them.
Among the items he donated were 20 footballs, 44 T-Shirts, 13 red T-shirts, 3 training tops, 3 track suits and other items.
The other area that benefited from the donation is Port Loko and Makeni. Before presenting the items Minister Algassimu Jah said to underscore the importance they attach to sports that is why they are doing everything to support the amputee social club.
He went further that if Amadu Jah has the necessary support he will do everything in his power to make sure that he provides more items for the amputees.
Amadu Jah in his own contribution encouraged the amputees to work harder if they are to achieve their goal.
He stated that giving must come from the heart and he has planned for the team to play in Sweden in the future.
He maintained that amputees should not be allowed to be relegated as a human being “it is not good for you to be relegated” and to avoid that he said “you need to be focused at all times.” If you want to achieve that he said “work towards the best and as a Sierra Leonean you need to have a hero in your country not outside Sierra Leone.”
He stated that amputees have a history which is a very big history of what has happened.
The President of the SLASC in his own contribution thanked Amadu Jah for the items and promised that they will be used for the five different amputee teams in the country.
By the end of the year he disclosed “we are going to have three more amputee teams countrywide”. He explained that they formed the Single Leg Amputee Social Club in 2001 and since that time they have never relented and they will still not relent they will press forward.
The Director of Sports Saidu Mansaray who chaired the programme said the ceremony is for the recognition of the promotion of the Single Leg Amputee Social Club(SLASC) that has been upgraded as a sports club.
