The team got a welcome opportunity to get out into the community when they conducted a clinic for 40 school-age kids today as part of the President’s Emergency Plan for Aids Relief (PEPFAR), a $440 million dollar program to provide education on AIDS prevention in South Africa. In conjunction with Hope WorldWide and HIVSA, two groups of kids from local schools gathered in Soweto for an hour-long session of soccer exercises, taking photos, and getting autographs from the players. "It really was a special experience to see the joy these kids get out of playing football," said Tim Howard. "To see kids who have so little and yet smile so much, it was truly a blessing to spend time with them. I'm so glad we were able to be a part of it."
Look for tomorrow's all_access video feature on this special day.
