Futbal (Soccer) is a Honduran athletic staple and these boys take it seriously.   They move so hard and fast that it almost impossible to get a clear shot of them in action.

Dodge ball is a favorite at the City of Refuge especially among the younger kids who aren’t quite big enough to play soccer with the older children.

Weight training is another favorite among the boys.

Athletics is very important at The City of Refuge.

Not only is play is a proven tool in helping traumatized children heal.

But children also learn valuable life skills through sports such as patience, perseverance, team work, anger management and conflict resolution to name a few.
