THE Groenwater Liverpool Football Club received a positive response from Kumba Iron Ore after making a sincere request to them.

This proves that Kumba Iron Ore, a business unit of Anglo American, strives to build stronger communities by making a real difference in the communities in which they operate.

The Groenwater Liverpool Football Club was established in 2002, and the club approached the Kolomela Mine for a soccer practising kit and soccer gear.

The club needed the gear to attract more youngsters from its community and to get them involved in the sport. The club has a strong vision on youth development through sport and aims to keep the youth away from drug and alcohol abuse.

The chairperson of the club, Bosman Leonard, said: “We want to make the community aware of the club’s existence and are even looking at establishing female soccer teams. The club’s aim is to unite the community and as a club we are grateful to the Kolomela Mine for showing interest in the well-being of small communities. Although the team is currently participating in local league tournaments, the club would like to see members of the team grow and, if possible, play for the national soccer team.”

A spokesperson of the mine was quoted as saying that they cared about the community and wanted to work with them and the youth for a better tomorrow.
