US-Based Ghanaian coach George Lamptey holds soccer clinic for three orphanages in Accra

Orphans at the Osu Childrens Home, Street Academy and Methodist Rehab Project were given a new taste of charity as America-based Ghanaian coach George Lamptey held a soccer clinic for them at the St. Thomas Aquinas SHS Park on Saturday.

The former Ghana international who has been coaching in the US for over two decades as well as serving as a top scout for many clubs in Europe held the free soccer clinic for the kids as part of a summer soccer camp.

The clinic was held at the Aquinas School Park from 8:30am to 2:30pm on Saturday 11th August, 2018.

According to the former Asante Kotoko and Black Stars player, the free clinic is one of the few exercises for the orphanage.

“Apart from the usual charity of giving the orphanage foodstuffs and cash, I want to hand them a new taste of charity. The kids are just like kids everywhere and they deserve what with their parents have.

“Such exercises have always been organised for kids staying with their parents but I think these kids also deserve such clinics to be active,” George Lamptey told 442gh.com

The kids from the three orphanages, who numbered close to hundred, were taken through series of soccer drills by several coaches both local and foreign.

They were also given a wonderful feast by George Lamptey and his team with several drinks and water provided by some philanthropists.

This will be the first time the former international has organised such an event for the orphanages which promises to be a yearly exercise.
