Shepherd Stars Football Club was thrilled yesterday to receive generous donation of 30 pairs of Adidas boot, two sets of jerseys, bags, tracksuit, holes, cons, 12 Adidas new balls, medication supplies, gloves, among others from a Ghanaian based in the United State of America – Wisdom Loh.
The donation went towards the continued effort by Mr. Loh to support the Odupong Ofaakor [an outskirt town of Kasoa] based club in its bid to help the wellbeing of young people across the local community, rewarding their efforts in school and providing them with the necessary modern day football training and skills.

Your unparalleled commitment of seeing this club and orphanage grow is what has kept us strong also and given us a reason to continue to do football and also run the orphanage successfully. With you, these little orphans are assured of their next meal.
Thank you papa for putting smiles on the faces of these orphans and supporting to secure their future. The football players are also assured of where the next set of equipment will come from.
