We at Kerala Blasters FC, a football club built on the three core pillars of Collectivism, Inclusivity and Sportsmanship strongly believe that football is larger than the sport. It is a medium of empowerment, an emotion that brings communities together and an expression of optimism and hope. Through our community connect initiatives, we hope to channel our spirit, the power of football and the passion of our fans into uniting one another as a family with a strengthened sense of belonging.
The club has initiated several relief activities particularly during the catastrophic floods that affected the people of the state in 2018. In addition to the several on-ground flood relief activities that were commenced by the club, the investors of KBFC had also made a contribution to the Chief Minister’s relief fund as a support to the initiatives undertaken by the state.
In an attempt to recognize the bravery and express gratitude to all front-line workers, who have risked their lives to support the safety of fellow beings during this pandemic, KBFC initiated a #SaluteOurHeroes campaign through the club’s digital and social media handles. The campaign consisted of two parts:
The club will continue to support the front-line workers with many more such initiatives in the near future.Kerala Blasters FC will continue to serve Kerala in football, sports ventures and all other humanitarian initiatives.
Kerala Blasters FC further donates 1,50,000 pcs. of Hydroxychloroquine Sulphate 200mg tablets to support the Government of Kerala in its fight against the Corona Virus. This is in addition to the 1,00,000 tablets that were donated earlier. These tablets in total, arranged with the help of M/s Lauras Laboratories Ltd, Hyderabad, will serve as a preventive measure for nearly 25,000 front-line health care workers.
“The spirit of a football club is captured by the ability of its community to come together in difficult situations. In times like this, players, transfers, extensions etc. are all far less important than the overall wellbeing of the society. This additional contribution of 1.5L tablets is a further commitment that KBFC, besides football, continues to focus on the overall wellbeing of the people of Kerala and uphold the indomitable spirit of the Kerala community”, says Nimmagadda Prasad, Owner, Kerala Blasters FC.
