Malik's father was killed during the fighting in Libya. 'I miss him. He used to take us to the parks to play.' But then Malik came to a Save the Children activity centre in Benghazi where he could have fun with his friends and dream of playing for his heroes, Barcelona. The gift of a football gave Malik back his childhood.

The gift of a football can help children forget the harsh realities of living in the midst of conflict, disaster or extreme poverty, even if it's just for 90 minutes.
This gift represents a donation to our education work, and could help buy footballs to give children back a sense of normality.
