Diamond Child from Sierra Leona, the third invited team for Donosti Cup 2019

Aiming the children to share them experiences through Football, since 25 years ago the Donosti Cup Foundation invites each year teams that come from disfavoured areas, financing them accommodation, manutention and transport expenses.

During these weeks we´ve been revealing that the Palestinian teams Not to forget Jenin and Al-Bustan will be the first invited teams of the tournament.
This time, we want to announce that the Foundation will invite a third team that comes from the African continent, concretely from Sierra Leona.

Diamond Child, is a team that is formed by children from families with lack of resources, which have been victims, ex-warriors and orphan of the civil war, as well known as the “Diamond War”. A conflict which is known worldwide for its slaughters, amputations and the massive use of child-soldiers, not to mention the diamond traffic that rebel groups use for its financing.
The team has been created thanks to the Diamond Child NGO, which works with more than 450 children to form them in basic education, music, arts and culture.

Its president, Seydu, a popular musician that has resided Spain for a few years and thanks to which we were able to manage the invitation of the team, is really happy with the Project and with the fact that the children have the opportunity to travel to San Sebastian.
As a thanksgiving, all of them are training really motivated and enthusiastic to represent them country in Donosti Cup. Moreover, they have told us they are preparing some surprise with percussion and acting during the tournament.

They will arrive to our city to experience the tournament inside the B14 category.

We are really looking forward to see you, welcome to Donosti Cup!
