Citizens Dutch player, Raoul Honings, last Saturday presented some equipment (clothes, balls and hockey sticks) to the hockey fraternity of Ghana to support the development of the sport.
During an interview with him, he noted that hockey is dear to his heart and upon arrival into the country he realized that its development was hindered due to expensive nature of its equipment. He said
“Back in my country, people throw their sticks away when they are worn out. I wanted to help Ghana Hockey and give the old sticks a second live over here in order to support and promote Ghana/Africa hockey to the world”.
He then started a charity action back in Netherlands where he collected sticks, balls and clothes from the people so that he distributes them in Ghana.
In his final comments he said “if I get more publicity I am going to try to make it last, together with Citizens International Hockey Club”.
Raoul Honings is a Dutch who has his roots from Cuijk. He is a student of Korle Bu Teaching Hospital studying Human Movement Science. He plays hockey for Citizens International Hockey Club and intends to do more to help support and promote the support in Ghana.
