ANWAR SADEK B. JAAFAR AHMAD
Anwar Sadek, a 15 year old Rohingya refugee is currently enrolled in a boarding school named Sekolah Menengah Islam Ad-Diniah located in Pulau Pinang.
He loves playing football but also joins many other events held in school and is frequently seen at the forefront of many of these activities. Originally from Arakan, Myanmar, his father Jaafar works at a car workshop to help sustain the family with 4 mouths to feed, education to sustain and other basic needs to be met.
Anwar has a great passion for football and is among the few outstanding players in his team. This avid soccer player was so dedicated that on top of studies and being active in other events, he participated in 6 months of intense weekly football practice under the United Nation’s AFC-UNHCR project.
The UN’s AFC-UNHCR project started in December 2016 when AFC signed an international agreement with UNHCR. It aims to undertake effective social responsibility campaigns and promote the game of football and its unifying educational, cultural and humanitarian values. Cooperation between the two organisations in enhancing social development for refugees through football took place under the auspices of AFC’s newly launched Dream Asia Foundation. The first joint pilot project under the Agreement was to support Rohingya refugees in Malaysia and Anwar was of the lucky few given the opportunity to take part and benefit greatly from it.
Currently, he plays football for Ad-Diniah school football team and aspires to study hard to be a doctor in future all whilst keeping his passion for football alive.
