A country torn apart by civil war, Sierra Leone has a large population of citizens whose lives have been affected, both emotionally and physically by the years of fighting.

 

Single Leg Amputee Association (SLASA) was created to address the gaps in social infrastructure for amputees by providing trauma recovery, addressing misconceptions of disabilities, promoting peace, and helping amputees reintegrate into society.

 

The organisation provides football training, creates pitch facilities that can be used by the entire community, and teaches young people skills to effectively join the workforce.

 

What originally started as an idea to create a single team in order to take part in competitions in the local area, has now expanded into 350 players and six official seven-a-side teams.
