PLAYERS DONATE € 3,000 TO IBRAHIMA
Our players donate € 3,000 from the players pot to Ibrahima and his family. The U15 player lost his two brothers in a house fire in Laken two weeks ago and on top of that all their equipment went up in flames.
"That's the least we can do," said captains Kevin Vandendriessche and Andrew Hjulsagerwho handed over a symbolic cheque to Nils Vanneste of the KVO Se'Academy.
"Ibrahima and his family can use all the support they can get, not only mentally but also materially," said Nils Vanneste. "After KVO previously provided crowdfunding money to shop at Decathlon and we from the youth also donated several department store vouchers, this is another fantastic additional initiative. Chapeau to the entire group of players. It is the intention that a trustee will manage the money in consultation with Ibrahima and his family. If they need furniture in the future, for example, the money can be used."
But in the meantime, all bits are still welcome. Who still clothing, toys, book bags, backpacks, mobile phone payment cards, kitchen utensilscan still bring it in to the KVO fan shop. Also KV Mechelen, tomorrow's opponent, has made an appeal to their supporters to bring their belongings into the stadium. The stuff will be transported by bus to Ostend tomorrow, a beautiful action by the 'Kakkers'.
Last but not least, our mood group 031 have also put their heads together. They are donating vouchers worth €300 to spend at clothing chain H&M.
Michael Saelens, owner of supporters cafe 'den As'. donated the vouchers in the name of the whole spirit group. Chapeau guests !
