Above all, your efforts in helping other people regain their dignity too. Mutually, the time is now we have to stand up in solidarity and protect the human rights for all. I want to thank the African Youth Initiative Network (AYINET) for organizing this memorable War Victims Football Match, they created opportunity for all of us to stand up and support victims of war”

 United Nations Secretary General, H.E Ban-Ki-Moon

Football has brought us together today. World leaders, ICC State Delegates, War Victims and all people of good will for the noble cause. As we participate, each in our unique ways, we have the opportunity to identify with our brothers and sisters whose lives have regrettably not only been affected, but also defined by war and other cowardly acts of terrorism and crimes against humanity. Together with the United Nations, we in The Republic of Uganda express our solidarity with war victims”
