How football helped me escape war in Syria for new life in the Netherlands
Raed Bko – #FootballPeople weeks interview
Thanks for talking to us, Raed. Firstly, tell us about your role as a panellist at the Kompass / One Young World #FootballPeople weeks event. What’s the significance?
Raed Bko: You can communicate important social messages through football. I think it’s important that children learn to interact with each other no matter what colour, religion etc.
Football is one of the easiest ways to achieve that. All parts of society meet each other on and around the football pitch. I have also got to know many people myself thanks to football. You learn to operate as a team and deal with other opinions in a team.
