The Lesotho National Olympic Community once again celebrates the Refugees Day; which recognises the strength and courage of people who have been forced to flee their home countries to escape conflict or persecution.
Therefore the LNOC in Collaboration with The Ministry of Home Affairs, The ministry of Gender, Youth, Sports, Arts and Culture, and Social Development, Skills Share Lesotho and National Federations(NFs) came to celebrate together with the refugees and to expose them to different sporting codes since sports is a human right for all individuals regardless of race, social class and sex!
The celebration is held at LNOC Premises at Maseru West where amongst the Guests are the Hon. Minister of Sports Mr Pitso Lesaoana, Hon. Minister of Home Affairs Mr Lebona Lephema and other senior government officials. There are NFs like weightlifting, table tennis, boxing, taekwondo and teqball who will be demonstrated to the refugees to establish their interest in sports participation.
