CADFA Palestinian Girls’ Football Team


Camden Abu Dis Friendship Association are an organisation many of us at Interpal have a huge soft spot for! They work to organise exchange visits, advocate for children’s rights and provide services for children in Abu Dis, Palestine.

The undefeated CADFA Palestinian Girls Football Team are fierce, hardworking and determined, despite the barriers they face.

“As soon as I am on the pitch, anything is possible”- Lina (Age 10) Abu Dis, West Bank

“Football is a team sport and not an individual sport. We are all better as part of the team.”- Manar (Age 11) Abu Dis, West Bank

These amazing young women are hoping to come to the UK are play football- without the restrictions they face under occupation. Their passion for sport, for their community and for their team is truly inspiring!
