Every summer, the Mali Wellness Foundation visits Mali, Africa with the goal to provide service for nearby villages. Even though slightly delayed, the foundation made sure to visit after the heat of the pandemic. With negative COVID-19 tests, the group safely landed in Africa in November 2020.
During the foundation’s stay in Mali, it made several contributions.
One contribution within the villages included the installation of two water filtration systems for the wells and two standard basketball courts. Additionally, a village school received new uniforms, 50 school desks and free eye screenings. The help continued when the foundation spent the day at a school for the blind and donated 200 walking canes.
Putting the new basketball courts to use, the foundation participated in a tournament with the locals. A surprise included custom PROLOOK uniforms for the participants, donated specifically for the trip.
“We thank the Mali Wellness Foundation for all the support and donations that they provided for the trip,” event organizer Kip Elison said. “With PROLOOK’s generosity, we were able to outfit the Hirondel Club Team with new uniforms. They were so excited to get new gear. They are the best uniforms that they have ever had and included their very own club logo. When I presented the coach with the coach’s shirts he said to me, ‘we now have the nicest uniforms in all of Africa, even better than the Mali National teams!’”
