Irish Tennis Coach Helping Refugees
I recently spoke to Wesley O Brien who is an Irish Tennis Coach Helping Refugees on ROS FM.
Wesley uses his HIT and HOPE Tennis Programs – to bring Tennis to Kids affected by War and Conflict in Refugee Camps.
He created a Facebook page to raise funds from donated signed sports memorabilia to support the HIT and HOPE Tennis Program.

The concept talked about here resonated with me because if any country should feel genuine sympathy for the plight of refugees- it should be us here in Ireland.
We talk with pride about “the Irish diaspora” which came about because millions of our forebears had to escape starvation, oppression and poverty.
Instead of the blame and hate politics that have emerged in the world, we now inhabit maybe we need to reflect upon being better people by being”just human” and remembering our own history and just doing our little bit to help out.
Maybe you could help out this worthy initiative by sharing this post and do your little bit to support Waynes endeavours- by raising awareness of the initiative.
