Kids play out friendly games in Barclays ISF tournament

The IndoChina Starfish charity organisation, which aims to provide education, healthcare and sport to disadvantaged Cambodian children, concluded its 2013 Barclays ISF football event on Saturday at the National Institute of Education and Sport in Russey Keo district.

With approximately 300 children participating, including those with learning, hearing and visual disabilities, a series of 32 play-off matches were held between boys and girls teams.

ISF vice president Chhub Kanga, who was chief organiser of the day-long competition, said: “There is an increase in the number of participants in this fourth edition, yet there are no prizes for the winners.

Instead we offer trophies and medals to the team members because it’s just for fun.”
