It’s a green pitch for children in Digale!

A few miles north of Somaliland’s capital Hargeisa lays Digale camp—one of the largest and oldest settlement for Internally Displaced people (IDP). This settlement is  home for more than 6,000 individuals; most of them are children and youth. The area is covered with rocks making it very difficult to drive through even with 4X4 land cruiser.

Save the Children with financial support from the Arsenal Foundation have constructed a football pitch to encourage and give opportunity to children to play football.
