Children's Sports & Medical Program

Mercy International holds an annual soccer tournament and medical program in May of every year for the children Osi-Ekiti and its surrounding communities. For two days, children from ten primary schools from Osi and other neighboring communities participate in a single elimination soccer tournament. As the sport's matches are ongoing, we attend to the children medically. 

Our support communities in Minnesota greatly help make this program possible by providing vitamins, children's books, soccer balls, and other sports equipment. The table below shows the number of participants and equipment that were distributed to the children.
