Adelaide United winger Awer Mabil is collecting boots to take back to Kenya and distribute within the Kakuma Refugee Camp.
At the end of last season, Awer Mabil went back to visit the Kakuma Refugee Camp in Kenya where he wanted to make a difference.
Upon arrival he was overwhelmed and moved by the needs of thousands of kids in the camp who love football but have no equipment.
The 19-year-old, born and raised in the infamous Kakuma Refugee Camp, has won over the hearts of United's fans in his three seasons with the club.
In the off-season, while most players will go on a holiday, travel, visit families or rest up, Awer along with and his older brother and teammate Osama Malik, will again chose to spend his time travelling to Kenya.
Awer is collecting second hand football boots to take back to Kenya in June. He along with Osama will visit the Kakuma Refugee Camp where the boots will be given to those less fortunate.
