[digg=http://digg.com/soccer/Sierra_Leone_hummel_2009_10_Home_Jersey_Kit]Save the Children Denmark (Red Barnet) had their annual collection in September 2008 in aid of the children in the country of Sierra Leone – one of the poorest places in the world.
Prior to the collection hummel offered a helping hand to Save the Children Denmark by donating 8% of the Sierra Leone national team jersey sales to the work carried out by Save the Children Denmark in the slum districts in Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone.
Sierra Leone is best known as a poor country marked by years of civil warfare. However, at the same time it is also a football crazy country with a well-playing national football team for which hummel have now become official sponsor. The green and blue shirts worn by the ‘Leone Stars’ as they are called, will be sold in selected sports stores and through www.engodsag.dk in the beginning of 2009.
