According to the president, the federation has initially engaged the Ministry of Sport officially regarding their tournament’s preparation package noting that the federation has been able to manage the welfare of the boys throughout the training exercises through their own meager contribution and other support from philanthropists and private institutions.

“We are disappointed with the ministry of sport for depriving deaf players who have trained vigorously under difficult circumstances especially with this golden opportunity tournament which comes on annually and the competition is almost coming to a kick off ahead of next week in Lome with other sister West Africa Countries’’.

She said, SLDSF may not participate in the West Africa Deaf Football Tournament because of lack of funds to take the players to Togo, where the competition is going to be staged and that Sierra Leonean deaf youth may be ruled out of the competition which might have exposed them to the rest of the world in the area of deaf football.

She appealed to government, sport loving fans and the general public to give a helping hand to promote deaf people and the country at large.
