Sammy and his friends love to have fun and play with kids all over the world. And for us soccer is a tremendous tool to help those in the midst of poverty, AIDS and even civil war. Many of Sammy’s friends have visited some poor and even dangerous places to help at schools, orphanages and prisons.
**Images of Manchester United’s Fred the Red and Bullidibum from Red Bull Salzburg does not imply an endorsement of Surge Soccer and their programs.
Though Surge International closed down their Cascade Surge Soccer Team in 2009 (Salem, Oregon), Surge Soccer lives on with soccer projects around the world. Children’s lives have been impacted in the USA, Liberia, Austria, Mexico, Kosovo, Liberia, Mongolia, Liberia, Peru,
Romania, Sierra Leone, Togo…
We love to encourage children to reach their potential. We not only run Soccer Camps and After School Programs, visit orphans and refugees, we also donate soccer gear and equipment.
We are guided by our theme verse from the Old Testament Isaiah 1:17
Learn to to good. Seek Justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the orphan. Fight for the rights of the widows.Is. 1:17 NLT
You could follow Sammy’s example and lend someone a hand. Whether doing home chores, helping a neighbor or someone around the world, cheerfully helping others is what Sammy is about.
