Women, HIV, and Footy: What Better Combination?

Since I've been bringin' tha doom and gloom lately (a reflection of internal states in external expression), I bring you a bit of warmth for the heart.

A Zimbabwe football (as in the association brand, aka soccer) association has been formed for players who are living with HIV. So far, it's largely women and children who've signed up, and the major players in Zimbabwe's professional leagues (i.e., the ones for men) are staying out of involvement, which is a shame.

I haven't yet been able to find any way to get hold of the new league, to find out if there's some way we over here can help - sending equipment or money, perhaps. If anyone has a link to share, please let us know. I'm very involved with my local adult leagues, and it'd be awesome to get them involved in procuring gear for this league.
