You may remember in April 2012 Bishop Richard Chartres welcomed our Brazil team to St Paul’s Cathedral, London. The good Bishop has continued his support of the Street Child World Cup by announcing this years London Diocese Lent Appeal will be in support of our Road to Rio 2014.
The Bishop said: “Football can bring the world together and transform lives. It was thrilling to meet members of the Brazilian team from the 2010 Street Child World Cup. I heard about grim experiences in early life and the power of support and friendship to open up new hope and aspirations.”
A big thank you to the Bishop and his team who have supported Street Child World Cup throughout our journey.
“It was possible to gather many nationalities, story cultures, viagra 60mg and form a nation: a nation of free man, with equal rights and opportunities, mutual respect, rightful duties. It was 10 days when the world, in that corner of Rio, was fair to socially excluded children; they could feel the beauty of being somebody in this world.”
“It was a privilege to be invited to the launch of the Street Child World Cup at Downing Street. It gives children a voice through football, sales a platform to express their rights and celebrate their abilities – I’m proud to add my support.”
“No child should have to live on the streets and I fully endorse this campaign giving street children a voice to claim their rights”
