Players of Amateur Clubs in the North West have started receiving anti COVID-19 gifts from the Cameroon Football Federation, FECAFOOT as a means to support them during this period of inactivity. The distribution exercise started Friday July 17 at the Secretariat of FECAFOOT at Fon’s Street Bamenda, Cameroon.
Presiding over the event, FECAFOOT North West President, Mbigha Felix called on the players to respect the barrier measures put in place by the government of Cameroon and the World Health Organization while reminding them that Covid-19 is real. He regretted however that the beautiful season ended abruptly.
“I will want to use this opportunity to thank the national president for these gifts and like Oliver Twist, we will always ask for more for our region”.
“I will also like to remind him of the dire need of football infrastructure in the region. We are suffering”, Mbigha Njah Felix, North West FECAFOOT president said.
Each regional league player received 5kg of rice, two litres of groundnut oil and 5 sardines.
After receiving the gifts, the players expressed great delight in the gifts offered and pleaded that life itself is difficult as they can’t access the pitches again coupled with the socio-political situation of the region.
Teams of Bui and Donga Mantung divisions will begin receiving the gifts in the days ahead.
