Adrian Silva, who works in Sampdoria, donated computers to two Afghan refugee sisters in Genoa. Both are sisters of Rahila Saya, a 21-year-old Afghan journalist and activist, who arrived in Italy on August 25.
The donation from the International Portuguese Organization is part of an initiative promoted by the Forum Economia Innovazione, which in Italy is collecting computers for distribution to Afghan refugees. “As soon as they told me the story of these girls, I immediately thought that helping was the right thing to do,” Adrien Silva said in his press office. The Portuguese player invited them to watch Sampdoria Fenza and eventually the computers show.
Watch the moment:
I think it was difficult for them to flee their country. I hope they find peace here and live freely again. I hope to keep in touch and be able to help you again in the future if needed.”
Rahila thanked him for his contribution: “Watching a football match and meeting Adrien Silva is a great memory. He is one of Sampdoria’s most talented and famous players. Once again, thank you for the help and for donating the laptops to Masoma and Fátima.”
