My husband and I have been running a project to bring super talented players from vulnerable background to spend a season or a few months playing football in Finland. This year we ran out of funds because we are both unemployed. There is a super talent, Carlos Silva from Chile, who we would like to bring this season.
Carlos is an exceptional person, he lives in a ghetto in Santiago, where drug dealers and violence rule. He was in the youth squad of Colo Colo (one of the local big clubs) but he suffered a sever burn in his leg, he almost lost the leg, but he is such a hard working person that he recovered in two years, and then he had the huge opportunity to play the homeless world cup, in 2012 in Mexico; his team was the world champion. After that he received a few offers from semi pro clubs but their resources are not enough to provide him a (much needed) salary.
Coming to Finland would be a golden opportunity for him to see another world and play at least one season in peace in a better environment and prove to local agents that he belongs in the higher leagues.
To bring him here we need to collect money for his ticket, visa expenses and tuition for the months he spends here.
Help us bring Carlos!!
If there are any surplus from the donations, they will be used to help other vulnerable players
Thanks in advance
