I can still play football –

My latest children’s book is  about a young boy Abu  who believed that he would never be able to play football again with his friends after a car accident that crushed his leg. and part of the leg had to be removed. His biggest journey was learning to get along without his leg- he used crutches to help him walk again and that was alright. But he really wanted to play football with his friends.

Thanks to all those who have purchased my book, proceeds of which are going towards helping the charity Melqosh Mission International, giving hope to those children and adults whose limbs and arms where amputated during the civil war in Sierra Leone West Africa.

The aim of my book is to help children like Abu the character in my book,  to develop greater self-esteem and confidence and identify with characters that “look like me” and open them to a  world of possibilities. I can still play football is my second children’s book in my “I Can” series of books aimed at children aged 7-9 years old.
