IOC, UNHCR And Samsung Launch Major Sports Kits Program For Young Refugees

More than 150,000 young people living in camps for refugees and internally displaced people will get access to sport through a two-year programme which will see the distribution of IOC sports kits in 20 countries throughout Asia, Africa and America. The IOC, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and Samsung, one of the IOC’s TOP partners, have teamed up to bring the joy of sport and the related psychological benefits to young refugees who have often suffered enormous atrocities.
