이재민캠프의 청소년들, 축구로 위안을 얻다

2006.11.16
13 year old Mahamat Ali is a refugee from the Central African Republic. He is one of 28,000 people living in the Amboko camp in southern Chad. He fled here three years ago, after his parents were killed during a coup d'etat. Soundbite (Arabic) Mahamat Ali, 13 years old: ”In the beginning it was very difficult because I came here on my own. And it was very hard to live without the parents.” After being found living under a plot of trees by the UN refugee agency, Ali was brought to the Amboko refugee camp where he was reunified with his uncle, who also ran from the violence. Soundbite (Arabic) Abdulaye Mahamat, Mahamat’s uncle: “When the war started back in the Central African Republic, the child left, when he saw his parents die, he ran to escape. We left too and ended up here in the camp, and when the child saw me, here in the camp. I’m his uncle. He came to me and I took him in, like he is my son.” Abdulaye is happy that Ali has found football. In a camp bursting at the seams, there is little to do otherwise, football gives ali an outlet and refuge from the traumatic pain he has suffered. Soundbite (French) Waladingar Bdieubeni, Mahamat’s coach: “When he plays he doesn’t think. It gives him a little strength. He lost his fatherand his mother. When he plays, the problems go away and he can sleep at night.” Ali’s coach, who is himself a refugee, encouraged him to take up football. He says Ali has developed into a great striker but has also learned more important lessons from the game Soundbite (Arabic) Mahamat Ali, 13 years old: ”The thing that really motivated me was the fair-play, which is a form of education. When you play football with your mates, you learn to be tolerant, and you also learn to be part of a team.” Ali idolizes Ronaldinho, but he knows that in order to become a star, you also need to have a good education. Soundbite (Arabic) Mahamat Ali, 13 years old: “The sport helps me focus on school because I want to learn and become an intellectual one day…someone who works like the people with the UN here, who are motivated and work in the humanitarian field. I want to succeed at school. One day want to be someone important like them too.” This is Jonathan Schienberg reporting for UNICEF.
