NSBT Team Supports FANT Amputee Football Gala | Flying Stars

We are pleased to share that Nectar Sierra Leone Bulk Terminal team sponsored an event organised by FANT, a humanitarian organisation which works with children and youth in Sierra Leone. FANT’s  

Football Gala supports amputee football across the country. The tournament took place over the past two months, and matches were played in Bo, Kenema, Makeni and Freetown with 250 participants.

FANT works to create better living conditions for children and youth in emerging countries and uses sports as a platform to develop healthy communities. Football has proven to be a strong tool in organising and including people with disabilities in society. This exciting event focused on education as well as networking, to bring together football players to create greater inclusion for disabled people in Sierra Leone. 

The Flying Stars Amputees was founded in the aftermath of the civil war at a rehabilitation centre for amputee victims. Since then, they have arranged football training sessions each week in Freetown, Kenema, Bo and Makeni, aiming to mobilise amputee football players in a healthy society.

We extend our appreciation to our NSBT team for their time, dedication, and support as we assist local communities to reach their potential, empower youth, and build a better future together.  Thank you Siamba Kamara and NSBT.
