United States: SBA supports Kiki, Las Vegas Rugby 7s

Since its registration as a 501(c)3 in the United States, the SBA has been able to raise donations for actions in Cameroon and elsewhere.

Thanks to this we decided to support Kiki in her adventure for the Las Vegas Rugby 7s.  Kiki reached out to the SBA requesting assistance to subsidize her travel expenses from Washington DC to Las Vegas.  According to her coach, Joanne Liu, her future in rugby is promising, she may even be chosen for the World Cup (keep an eye on this one!) and by way of thanks she will play while wearing the SBA colors next March 2-3.

Go Kiki!

United States: SBA supports Felicité and her children

The SBA USA is happy to be able to assist a Cameroonian mother, Felicité, who is living in the DC area. This lady who was hospitalized and underwent brain surgery, found herself alone to raise two children.  Today she is better, but barely makes ends meet in order to buy school supplies for her two children.  It is why the association took the decision to assist her.
Requested by one of the associations making up the Comité Tricolore of DC, here is their testimony: “These two children are very endearing and never fail to show us their affection and appreciation for what we bring to them.  They are surrounded by family in order to overcome this difficult time.“
