Hamrun Spartans celebrate inclusion and diversity through football

As Easter approaches, voluntary organisation Ħamrun Ħanin sought to share the happiness and togetherness of this feast among the diverse communities within our society.

In a celebration of inclusion and diversity, a number of young footballers from the Hamrun Spartans Football School of Excellence, accompanied by two players from the Senior Team, spent a morning among the younger students at the Primary section of St Benedict’s College in Birżebbuġa.

This school is a true reflection of unity within diversity, with kids from some 40 different nationalities sharing a common educational voyage.

They were joined by the budding footballers of the Ħamrun, and despite the differences of race, language and counry of origin, they shared moments of fun together with the language that unites us all – football.

During this event, Ħamrun Spartans stars Elvis Mashike and Dodo Soares shared some heart warming moments from their past, when, in view of the precarious situation in their respective countries, Congo and Cape Verde, they had no other option but to flee their countries and seek a better future in Europe.

Both players shared the tough times they had gone through but delivered a message of hope calling on the young kids present to never give up and continue chasing their dreams.

At the end of the event, the Ħamrun players delivered figolli to their new friends as a reminder of this beautiful day. This event was supported by Alberta, Ħamrun Ħanin’s main partner, and Mannarinu Caterers.
