`football for peace’

A team of Army soldiers, armed, not with guns, but with footballs, are all set to reach out for peace to the youth of Negros island, through sports in the project called “Soccer for Peace”.

Maj. Gen. Jose Mabanta, 3rd Infantry Division commander, said the soldiers, who are also football players, will momentarily lay down their guns, to visit conflict-affected areas of Negros island.

Mabanta said this is part of their campaign to bring peace to conflict-affected communities of Negros and Panay islands.
