“The FIFA 2010 is a big thing for football fans around the world, and football is a popular game especially this season.  We do not want our kids to miss out on the fun of playing football,” said Mr Ho.

The Social Welfare Department will begin distributing the FIFA balls to all the welfare institutions starting 23rd July 2010.
