On Saturday July 11th BEFC Futsal team took part in the International Association Japan's 6th Annual Futsal Competition raising money for those affected by the Nepal earthquake.
In an email Naoya Hirano of Japan Platform thanked IAJ and the teams who took part (BEFC) for the contribution from the tournament which will be used for the emergency relief activities in Nepal
The IAJ had this to say:
'Our event is listed as "July 11, 2015 Nepal Earthquake Donators-International Association Japan (日本国際協会)". Other contributor's names listed there are Panasonic, Canon, NTT, Softbank, TOYOTA, JAL, and ANA...They are huge international companies. We are very proud of YOU because YOU are as good as those companies! Actually, we received heart-felt emails and letters form the NGO and the PEOPLE. IMAGINE-since the values of the currencies are so different, we could send milk, food, blankets to hundreds of abandoned children. Literary, we saved hundreds of lives.'
The event listing referred to by IAJ can be seen on the Japan Platform website here:
BEFC are happy to have been able to help raise funds and contribute to helping people in Nepal with sports as a vehicle.
