    Soccer Clinics Bring Hope to Haitian Kids in Tent Cities


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     KellyWells said that between 100 and 200 kids, ages 4 to 17, participated in the soccer clinics. She said that some of the kids ran to get tennis shoes as soon as they found out about the clinics. Others went barefoot or wore shoes five sizes too big. One kid told KellyWells, "It [the soccer clinics] takes off the stress and helps the children have fun. I want to play for life."

    Six months after the Haiti earthquake, one organization is bringing hope to Haitian children by hosting soccer clinics in Port-Au-Prince's largest tent cities.  I just returned from Haiti with former Haitian national soccer team player Ricardo Pierre-Louis who hosted OneHope's soccer clinics.  This is a video of the soccer clinic in Acra, a tent city housing 15,000 people and suffering from an outbreak of Typhoid.  Soccer clinics were held in celebration of the World Cup and will continue this week in Haiti.  www.OneHope.net
