Last week we reported here that Judith Heard after dazzling on runways and featuring for years on the fashion scene now wants the world to also see and appreciate her other side – the softer side that not so many have embraced yet.
Using her Charity organization The Judith Hear Foundation, the veteran model has been involved in a lot of Charity work in recent times with the latest being her partnership with Volf Soccer Academy where they have been promoting and nurturing young talent in sports.
Last week, she donated an assortment of sports items especially soccer boots, balls and jerseys to young budding players which she received from Volf Soccer Academy based in Canada and Czech Republic and promised to even continue with the good deeds after receiving more items.
“Sports build good habits, confidence, and discipline. They make players into community leaders and teach them how to strive for a goal, handle mistakes, and cherish growth opportunities” Heard said.
She lived up to her promise when on Sunday October 20th 2019, she, together with her team embraced a wet Sunday afternoon to visit and hand over an assortment of the similar items to enthusiastic young footballers at Kaazo Day and Boarding Primary School in Kaazo zone, Kawembe division.
