Help for Gambia Deaf Football Team going for West Africans Deaf football tournament in Mali in May 2017.
 
Gambia Deaf, we took all the application letter with Invitation letter from WADSU , Mali Government acceptance letter and Our Budget to National Sports Council . Minister Of Youth and Sport, Gambia Football Faderation , Office of the President  and to Gambia National Olympic Committee since February this year . Yet no help from them.
 
The Gambia national football team spent more than £2700 on each player on international football duties and this the total amount the Gambia national Deaf football team spent for whole of their travel return tickets for the whole squad to Mali by Bus. It very unfair with all the money FIFA is sending to Gambian football and the government doing nothing to helping the Deaf national football team of The Gambia.

Am also holding two International position 
 
1- Vice President of Confederation of Africa Deaf Sports . 
2- President Of World Federation of the Deaf for Western and Central Africa Regional Secretariat.
 
Can you ask if GFF shall consider National Deaf Scorpions FC . I send them the application for their supports towards football materials and Bus tickets to and From Mali -Bamako . But they didn’t reply . 
 
The Deaf Scorpions FC has only three days left to go to Mali without even a single support from GFF. 
 
Thier recently meeting with us at GFF TD office was the most provoking meeting . The TD Mr Ebrima Manneh put on us a lot of swear words hopes But …..nothing see or done today . 
I wonder why He should behalf like on persons with Disability on the National development issues ?
