I Wanna Be Messi
In Africa, children with disabilities are a high risk of physical/emotional/sexual abuse as well as being abandoned by the family. Meanwhile, for these happy children from Saint Louis Orione Center in Bombouaka, it‘s all about football and a ball. They all are Messi and Ronaldo. Shouting happily, running free, football jerseys, Champions League on TV… football brings them peace and freedom.

يعاني الأطفال من أصحاب الهمم في إفريقيا من احتمال أكبر للتعرّض للعنف الجسدي والنفسي والجنسي، كما قد تتخلّى عنهم عائلتهم. وفي الوقت عينه في مركز القديس لويس أوريون في بومبواكا، لا يفكّر الأطفال السعداء هنا سوى بكرة القدم. يتقمّص كّل منهم دور ميسي أو رونالدو ويبدؤون بالصراخ بسعادة والركض بحريّة، مرتدين قمصان كرة القدم، بينما تُبث إحدى مباريات دوري الأبطال في الخلفيّة على التلفاز... إذ تمنحهم كرة القدم الحرية والسلام.
