UK charity donates rugby kits to Paraguay

The British Embassy in Asuncion offered a donation from UK charity SOS Kit Aid to the Paraguay Rugby Union (URP), during an event at the Paraguay Olympic Committee on Wednesday 20 October, 2021.

SOS Kit Aid kindly donated over 250 kilograms of rugby equipment ranging from balls to scrumcaps and boots, which will be of considerable help to the URP in expanding their work and promoting rugby more widely in the country.

The URP will do a thorough inventory of the donation and distribute it to the many teams all over Paraguay. The URP will focus on the smaller teams from rural areas and small cities, which do not always have access to equipment to play the world-wide popular sport.

In the words of Her Majesty’s Ambassador Ramin Navai:

The British Embassy is proud to be doing its part to encourage more Paraguayans, particularly youngsters, to try out this challenging sport that is so significant in the history of the UK.

The British Embassy looks forward to supporting future events with the URP.
