Dwight Yorke and BHHF Football Initiative
Dwight Yorke The former footballer, Dwight Yorke who had a successful career playing for Aston Villa, Manchester United, Blackburn Rovers, Birmingham City, Sydney FC and Sunderland, mainly as a forward in the years between 1988 and 2009 has taken a leading role in working with Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation’s (BHHF) Football Initiative.
He is excited about inspiring young refugees to be as great as they can be, learning this competitive sport and working together to create individual dreams and goals for the future. Mr. Yorke’s involvement is a demonstration of his kind heart and giving nature.
He will soon be in Kurdistan to inaugurate one of the two football fields recently completed. His presence will be exceptional in that the inspiration he will provide as one of the top players in the field ensures these vulnerable young adults will see value in how much sports can give to them in terms of lessons, communication, camaraderie, goal setting and belief in the future and what it can hold.
Mr. Yorke scored 64 goals for Manchester United in 188 appearances. He captures for these youth the true spirit of the game. BHHF is honored to have this great team player be part of their vision of creating hope and a better future for these children.
