Develop Community, encourage healthy lifestyles, prevent the spread of Sexually Transmitted Infections, share the most beautiful game.  These things at first glace seem to have very little in common, however a more anthropological look at rural Haiti villiages show that all of these purposes can be worked towards in one project.  Building a soccer complex.  

Soccer Salvation is partnering with Christianville, an established Non Government Organization (NGO) in Haiti for over 35 years, to build a 4 acre multi use sports complex.  The plans include a full sized soccer field, a basketball court, volleyball court, an outdoor meeting space, and various smaller practice soccer fields.  The complex will be located in Marcheal, Gressier, Haiti just 9 miles from the epicenter of the deadly earthquake that rocked the impovershed country in 2010.  

Prior to a build by a well known United States aid group, the community enjoyed a full sized soccer field near the school.  In 2011 this field was destroyed to make way for temporary housing for a wave of volunteers using the site for only two weeks.  After the aid group left Haiti, as many have, this soccer field and community center was left an empty lot covered in gravel littered with locked tractor trailers and shipping containers.  

Christianville, in conjuction with the community council of Marcheal (a small village who's leadership is responsible for the maintance and ownership of the field), are in the process of preparing the site with train tile using world class standards for field construction.  When completed the field will serve as a site for 3rd division Haitian national teams to play, and could some day produce the members of the Haitian National Sr. team.  

We need your help.  Soccer Salvation is working to raise $25,000 to fund the soccer portion of the park.  We know that by coming together as a community around the cause of soccer, we can fund this field and make a lasting difference for generations to come in this community.  Please donate today, and share this cause thorugh social media with your friends to make this dream become a reality.
