Sitting on his concrete terrace overlooking the Nile, a porcelain teapot with floral motifs close at hand, Mr. Sheng, 65, takes his troubles patiently. “We are on stand-by, there are no opportunities at the moment”, he said. Arrived in 2006 in Juba, the capital of South Sudan, this native of the Chinese province of Jiangsu is one of the pioneers who left to seek his fortune in a country where everything had to be built. ?There was nothing and no one here at the time! I chose land for my farm and I rented it for a period of thirty years ?, he confides.

Since then, hangars, factories, farms and a slaughterhouse have grown in the middle of this peri-urban area of ??the South Sudanese capital. Mr. Sheng now has nineteen industrial plants, mostly Chinese, along this road that runs along the Nile. ?It has become China Street! “, he jokes. Installed with his wife and their son in this both grandiose and unfinished property, however, he has not yet achieved the expected profits.

His farm of more than 54,000 square meters produces exclusively Chinese vegetables, which demand is insufficient to sell. But Mr. Sheng is not discouraged. “I still have fifteen years to make up for it!” “, he said, convinced that “South Sudan will be number one in Africa within a few years if peace prevails, because everything is there: space, fertile soil, water, and a small population”.

Clashes and looting

As early as 2005, at the end of the second Sudanese civil war, and even more after the independence of South Sudan in 2011, Beijing was involved in the construction of public buildings, and highways, or in the allocation of scholarships for students, even though China had supported the Khartoum regime against South Sudanese rebels. A small Chinese community had quickly formed in this new country, with more than 3,500 nationals at the height of its presence. But more than two-thirds have now left, after having gone bankrupt or being afraid of the violence that affected the capital. First in 2013, when a new civil war started, then in 2016, when a first peace agreement failed, giving rise to clashes and looting which did not spare the Chinese.

Despite these upheavals, Beijing has worked to strengthen its presence. The bright red “China Aid” sign overlooking the entrance to the new buildings of the Juba University Hospital warns visitors: these three-storey buildings, spread over an area of ??13,450 m2 are a gift from China. They were inaugurated in 2019, “At the conclusion of phase 1 of the modernization and expansion project” hospital, says Dr Ding Zhen, head of the 9e Chinese medical mission to South Sudan.

But behind the smooth facade of a relationship based on « respect » and the “Mutual benefits”, the reality is more nuanced. The South Sudanese crisis has claimed Chinese victims: two peacekeepers killed in 2016, and an engineer shot dead in May on the Juba-Rumbek highway construction site. In addition, the “revitalized” peace agreement of 2018 has still not produced a unified army, a project backed by China, the main donor of tents, uniforms and food for the training camps. Finally, the desire for greater regulation of the oil sector, and in particular the establishment of more advantageous salary scales for South Sudanese employees, do not please Beijing.

Anger of the South Sudanese

“Oil first, then tropical timber, finally the strategic position, between the Sahel and the Horn of Africa, such are the current interests of China in South Sudan, summarizes Jean-Pierre Cabestan, director of research at the CNRS. However, the wells operated by the Chinese national company are running out and require significant investments if it is to continue, which is not certain. “

For those who have staked everything on South Sudan, however, it seems difficult to turn back. Behind his large office on the third floor of a building “Built in six months” and inaugurated in 2010, Wu Yanhua says he invested 8 million dollars (7 million euros) in Juba. “All my family’s money, I brought it here, and so far, I haven’t gotten anything back”, loose the one who owns two hotels, a large supermarket, a farm and a hospital in the South Sudanese capital, instead of the textile factories it owned in Beijing.

They make you work from Monday to Monday, for a ridiculous salary! “, launches one of them, who prefers not to be named.

The executive is not under investigation, but was heard for 9 hours as a witness on the company’s anomalous movements from 2018 to 2021

Federico Cherubini spent a different Saturday that he would have gladly done without. He was not in his usual position on the sidelines at the Allianz Stadium in the pre-match of Juve-Atalanta and not even in the stands, because he spent the day on the fifth floor of the Turin Public Prosecutor’s Office, first questioned in the “Prisma” investigation, the storm that caused invested the club but which could also have heavy repercussions on Italian football, which has long been struggling with increasingly losing budgets and hardly sustainable investments. In the investigation entrusted to a pool of magistrates of the Economy group, which is mainly based on wiretapping by the Guardia di Finanza, Juventus is involved for administrative responsibility and six executives (Andrea Agnelli, Pavel Nedved and Stefano Cerrato) and ex (Fabio Paratici, Marco Re and Stefano Bertola), under investigation for false communications from listed companies and issuing of invoices for non-existent transactions. Cherubini is not among the suspects, but he was heard as a person informed of the facts and is considered a key witness by the investigators, the one who most of all can confirm and explain “the Paratici management”, executive with strategic responsibility “author of the preventive planning of capital gains”.

Phrases and contracts

?

Cherubini entered the Prosecutor’s Office early in the morning and left when it was pitch dark. More than nine hours of interrogation to retrace the three years of financial operations, during which the Bianconero provided valuable elements for the investigation. Prosecutors Mario Bendoni, Ciro Santoriello and the deputy Marco Gianoglio asked him to contextualize many interceptions and clarifications on purchases and sales of players that fueled the capital gains mechanism. The investigation focuses on the 2018-19, 2019-20 and 2020-21 seasons for a total figure of 282 million deriving from transactions “characterized by fraudulently increased values”. Cherubini (whose minutes have been classified) joined Juventus in 2012 as head of the youth sector. He worked on the Under 23 team before becoming Paratici’s number two and then taking their place last June, becoming Football Director. In the three years under investigation he was the operating arm of the former head of the sports area, now at Tottenham, and it is inevitable that he will be involved in many conversations. The manager was very collaborative, helping the prosecutors to rebuild the system set up by Paratici, which according to the accusation was based on capital gains used in a distorted way that caused an imbalance in the Bianconeri accounts and whose financial consequences, however, the board and Agnelli they were aware. Maximum cooperation also from the club during the 12 hours of search.

It is not excluded that other executives may be called in the next few days, including the CEO. Arrivabene, the head of the Under 23 Manna and the secretary Morganti, whose offices were searched together with that of Cherubini and the suspects. Meanwhile, Juventus remains calm and confident, as written on Saturday in the press release, “to clarify every aspect of interest, believing that it has operated in compliance with the laws and regulations governing the preparation of financial reports, in compliance with accounting principles and in line with international football industry practice and market conditions “.

American designer Virgil Abloh, artistic director of the Louis Vuitton fashion house, died at the age of 41 from cancer he had been battling for years.

Mourning in the fashion world. Virgil Abloh, designer and artistic director of Louis Vuitton men’s collections, died at the age of 41, struck down by cancer. The American designer had never talked about his illness. The news was given by the LVMH group itself, where Abloh had arrived in 2018. “The LVMH group, the Maison Louis Vuitton and Off-White have the immense pain of announcing the disappearance of Virgil Abloh, who died this Sunday November 28 for a cancer that he had been fighting for several years “, is what was announced on Twitter. Group president Bernard Arnault said he was “shocked” by the designer’s death. “We are all shocked by this terrible news. Virgil was not only a brilliant designer, a visionary, but also a man with a beautiful soul and great wisdom ?, is what we read. Virgil Abloh was also the creative director of Off White, of which LVMH was the majority shareholder.

designer Virgil Abloh

Born in 1980 in Chicago and originally from Ghana, Virgil Abloh leaves behind a wife, Shannon, and two children, Lowe and Gray. On her Instagram account, family members left a long message paying tribute to “a devoted father, husband, son, brother and friend”. And they talked about his illness. ?For more than two years, Virgil has valiantly battled a rare and aggressive form of cancer, cardiac angiosarcoma. She has chosen to wage her battle in private since her diagnosis in 2019, undergoing many difficult treatments, while leading several major institutions dealing with fashion, art and culture, ?it reads. “He often said, ‘Everything I do is for the 17-year-old version of myself’, deeply believing in the power of art to inspire future generations.”

At just 22, Virgil Abloh had become Kanie West’s right-hand man: he was in charge of the design of his album covers and the label’s merchandising. Then the turning point in the world of fashion, from Fendi to Rome, where he had done an internship at the age of 20. He had created his first label in 2012, Pyrex Vision. In 2013 he created Off-White in Milan, which offers clothing collections for men and women, inspired by the street and counterculture. In 2015 the brand was one of the finalists of the prestigious LVMH award. So in 2018, surprisingly, he was appointed artistic director of the Louis Vuitton men’s collections. LVMH signed an agreement in July with Abloh to become the majority shareholder of its Off-White brand. First great black designer, he was the king of luxury streetwear. Time magazine in 2018 had placed him on the list of the 100 most influential people in the world.

Many messages of condolence. “It is so sad to learn of the passing away of dear Virgil, one of the kindest people you will ever meet. How many good times spent around the world. My thoughts go out to Shannon, their children and the rest of her family”, is that of Kim Jones, artistic director of Dior man.

Weeks of invective on the part of very upset opponents; a virulent campaign, with death threats on social networks against elected officials, and references to a “health dictatorship” of Nazi obedience (we could even see a Swiss cross “armed” with syringes transforming it into a swastika); a strong poster campaign against the health pass, funded by the populist party UDC … It is in this unusually tense context that the Swiss voted, Sunday, November 28, on the “Covid-19 law” by which the authorities are piloting the pandemic response.

In a country where federalism, and therefore the autonomy of the cantons, is not an empty word, this election had the value of supreme test on the government’s room for maneuver while the fifth wave of the virus is already hitting many people hard. cantons of eastern Switzerland – that of Appenzell has experienced an incidence of more than 1,000 cases per 100,000 inhabitants for two weeks.

With a very strong participation (65%) unprecedented for half a century, the result is clear. With 62% of yes, the population supports the policy of the Federal Council, to the great relief of the Minister of Health: ?We thus continue to have the tools to fight this pandemic; we do not say yes or no to the disappearance of a virus, that would be too good “, said Alain Berset.

All the cantons accepted the law challenged by the referendum, with the exception of two German-speaking entities, the half-canton of Appenzell Inner Rhodes and that of Schwyz, where some municipalities opposed it by 80%. The ?no? map also very closely matches that of the vaccination coverage rate. The less people are vaccinated, the more they defy health policy.

Whether or not to toughen protective measures

It now remains to be seen to what extent this very clear result will mitigate the divisions that have emerged in recent months in a country unaccustomed to heated confrontations, even if they have remained verbal. “Worrisome fault lines have appeared even in families, they will now have to be overcome, because referendums aim to strengthen social cohesion”, the newspaper commented on Sunday evening The New Zurich Times. Before giving yourself in a somewhat contradictory way to this warning: ?Accepting the verdict of the ballot box also means staying away from people who break the rules and spread conspiracy theories. “

The researchers showed that by starting from seemingly common materials, a radically new quantum state of matter can appear. The discovery emerged from their efforts to create a quantum spin liquid which they could use to investigate emergent quantum phenomena such as gauge theory. This involves fabricating a single layer of atomically thin tantalum disulphide, but the process also creates islands that consist of two layers.

When the team examined these islands, they found that interactions between the two layers induced a phenomenon known as the Kondo effect, leading to a macroscopically entangled state of matter producing a heavy-fermion system.

The Kondo effect is an interaction between magnetic impurities and electrons that causes a material?s electrical resistance to change with temperature. This results in the electrons behaving as though they have more mass, leading these compounds to be called heavy fermion materials. This phenomenon is a hallmark of materials containing rare earth elements.

Heavy fermion materials are important in several domains of cutting-edge physics, including research into quantum materials. ?Studying complex quantum materials is hindered by the properties of naturally occurring compounds. Our goal is to produce artificial designer materials that can be readily tuned and controlled externally to expand the range of exotic phenomena that can be realized in the lab,? says Professor Peter Liljeroth.

For example, heavy fermion materials could act as topological superconductors, which could be useful for building qubits that are more robust to noise and perturbation from the environment, reducing error rates in quantum computers. ?Creating this in real life would benefit enormously from having a heavy fermion material system that can be readily incorporated into electrical devices and tuned externally,? explains Viliam Va?o, a doctoral student in Liljeroth?s group and the paper?s lead author.

Although both layers in the new material are tantalum sulphide, there are subtle but important differences in their properties. One layer behaves like a metal, conducting electrons, while the other layer has a structural change that causes electrons to be localized into a regular lattice. The combination of the two results in the appearance of heavy fermion physics, which neither layer exhibits alone.

This new heavy fermion material also offers a powerful tool for probing quantum criticality. ?The material can reach a quantum-critical point when it begins to move from one collective quantum state to another, for example, from a regular magnet towards an entangled heavy fermion material,? explains Professor Jose Lado. ?Between these states, the entire system is critical, reacting strongly to the slightest change, and providing an ideal platform to engineer even more exotic quantum matter.?

?In the future, we will explore how the system reacts to the rotation of each sheet relative to the other and try to modify the coupling between the layers to tune the material towards quantum critical behaviour,? says Liljeroth.

Demonstration of strength. Paolo Banchero has relaunched his first choice race in the Nba 2022 Draft by winning a double challenge with his Duke: against Chet Holmgren, center and his only rival in the race for number 1, and Gonzaga, the best team in the Ncaa ranking that Duke has folded 84-81. Paolo in the first half was dominant: 20 points and the impression of being much more ready for Holmgren’s NBA (16 points and 7 rebounds at the end), direct defender of Banchero (Paolo defending on the center of Gonzaga) put in difficulty from the already complete offensive talent of the blue. After the rest, however, Paolo surrendered to cramps, which forced him to have a drip during the match: in the end 21 points in 30 ‘, but Banchero still managed to be useful. “Having him on the pitch, even limited, helps his teammates a lot,” coach Krzyzewski crowned him. Observers came out of the challenge in front of the 20,389 spectators in Las Vegas with the idea that Banchero is now ahead of Holmgren in an NBA key: Gonzaga’s center has yet to develop, the 19-year-old with an Italian passport has shown to be much more complete.

The President of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Félix Tshisekedi, has authorized the Ugandan army to cross the border to fight rebels from the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) group, responsible for massacres in the east of the country, a- we learned, Sunday, November 28, from the Congolese presidency.

In the east, the provinces of Ituri and North Kivu have been placed under a state of siege since May, with the civilian authorities replaced by army and police officers. Despite this exceptional measure, however, the army was unable to prevent the massacre of nearly 1,200 civilians during this period, according to a report by the Kivu Security Barometer (KST), which has experts in the areas of this violence.

“President Tshisekedi has already lifted the option of authorizing Ugandan troops to enter Congolese territory to hunt down ADF terrorists, together with the army and peacekeepers”, declared to Agence France-Presse (AFP), an adviser to the Congolese presidency who requested anonymity. ?But Ugandan troops are not going to cross the border this evening or tomorrow. It is necessary that all the procedures be respected in particular at the level of the Parliament and the command of the Armed Forces of the DRC ?, he explained.

A “temporary solution” before the reorganization of the army

“We had been informed through our usual channels that President Tshisekedi authorized” Ugandan troops to fight the ADF on the Congolese side, a European diplomatic source confirmed to AFP. Ugandan forces are already preparing to deploy in eastern DRC, two diplomatic sources also told an AFP correspondent in Kampala on Sunday.

According to a Congolese government source, “Congolese and Ugandan officers are already working every day” together as part of“Exchange of information”. The head of state “Had promised us to formally authorize these ADF tracking operations by the UPDF [Uganda People?s Defence Force] on Congolese soil ?reacted Antipas Mbusa Nyamuisi, spokesperson for a delegation from the Nande community, the majority in the Beni region, where the rebel group is particularly active.

“We are happy because President Félix Tshisekedi kept his word, listening to the point of view of more than 80% of the population of Beni and its surroundings, direct victim of abuses and massacres by the ADF”, he added, believing that the Ugandan intervention is a ” provisional solution “ pending the reorganization of the Congolese army.

Fears of clashes between Rwanda and Uganda

However, this authorization to cross the border is not viewed favorably by all Congolese, some pointing to the role played by Ugandan and Rwandan neighbors in the destabilization of eastern DRC for nearly thirty years. ?If Ugandan troops enter the DRC, Rwanda will also send its troops to our territory. And my fear is to see the two countries again settle accounts at home ?, thus reacted a resident of Beni.

“Invite the army of a country [l?Ouganda] who has already fought in the DRC to appropriate the country’s minerals, is a mistake and an admission of the failure of the state of siege ?, meanwhile, regretted Jean-Claude Katende, president of the African Association of Human Rights (Asadho).

In 2000, the regular Rwandan and Ugandan armies clashed with heavy weapons in Kisangani, a major mining town in northeastern DRC, killing dozens and injuring hundreds. Uganda and Rwanda are regularly accused in UN and NGO reports of supporting armed groups operating in eastern Congo. More recently, the two countries also accuse the ADF rebels of being active in their respective territories.

ADF, ISIS’s ?Central African Province?

Uganda has named the ADF responsible for a double suicide bombing that killed three and injured 33 in Kampala in November, three weeks after two bomb attacks in the capital, also blamed on the rebels. In early October, Rwanda also claimed to have arrested thirteen ADFs who were preparing attacks in the country.

In DRC, Ugandan army authorized to cross border to hunt down ADF rebels

) [summary] => A double attack killed at least three people in Kampala, Uganda, on November 16, 2021. The Ugandan army was authorized by the president of the DRC to cross the border to drive out the ADF rebels, responsible according to the Ugandan authorities, recent attacks on its territory.

The President of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Félix Tshisekedi, has authorized the Ugandan army to cross the border to fight rebels from the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) group, responsible for massacres in the east of the country, a- we learned, Sunday, November 28, from the Congolese presidency.

In the east, the provinces of Ituri and North Kivu have been placed under a state of siege since May, with the civilian authorities replaced by army and police officers. Despite this exceptional measure, however, the army was unable to prevent the massacre of nearly 1,200 civilians during this period, according to a report by the Kivu Security Barometer (KST), which has experts in the areas of this violence.

“President Tshisekedi has already lifted the option of authorizing Ugandan troops to enter Congolese territory to hunt down ADF terrorists, together with the army and peacekeepers”, declared to Agence France-Presse (AFP), an adviser to the Congolese presidency who requested anonymity. ?But Ugandan troops are not going to cross the border this evening or tomorrow. It is necessary that all the procedures be respected in particular at the level of the Parliament and the command of the Armed Forces of the DRC ?, he explained.

A “temporary solution” before the reorganization of the army

“We had been informed through our usual channels that President Tshisekedi authorized” Ugandan troops to fight the ADF on the Congolese side, a European diplomatic source confirmed to AFP. Ugandan forces are already preparing to deploy in eastern DRC, two diplomatic sources also told an AFP correspondent in Kampala on Sunday.

According to a Congolese government source, “Congolese and Ugandan officers are already working every day” together as part of“Exchange of information”. The head of state “Had promised us to formally authorize these ADF tracking operations by the UPDF [Uganda People?s Defence Force] on Congolese soil ?reacted Antipas Mbusa Nyamuisi, spokesperson for a delegation from the Nande community, the majority in the Beni region, where the rebel group is particularly active.

“We are happy because President Félix Tshisekedi kept his word, listening to the point of view of more than 80% of the population of Beni and its surroundings, direct victim of abuses and massacres by the ADF”, he added, believing that the Ugandan intervention is a ” provisional solution “ pending the reorganization of the Congolese army.

Fears of clashes between Rwanda and Uganda

However, this authorization to cross the border is not viewed favorably by all Congolese, some pointing to the role played by Ugandan and Rwandan neighbors in the destabilization of eastern DRC for nearly thirty years. ?If Ugandan troops enter the DRC, Rwanda will also send its troops to our territory. And my fear is to see the two countries again settle accounts at home ?, thus reacted a resident of Beni.

“Invite the army of a country [l?Ouganda] who has already fought in the DRC to appropriate the country’s minerals, is a mistake and an admission of the failure of the state of siege ?, meanwhile, regretted Jean-Claude Katende, president of the African Association of Human Rights (Asadho).

In 2000, the regular Rwandan and Ugandan armies clashed with heavy weapons in Kisangani, a major mining town in northeastern DRC, killing dozens and injuring hundreds. Uganda and Rwanda are regularly accused in UN and NGO reports of supporting armed groups operating in eastern Congo. More recently, the two countries also accuse the ADF rebels of being active in their respective territories.

ADF, ISIS’s ?Central African Province?

Uganda has named the ADF responsible for a double suicide bombing that killed three and injured 33 in Kampala in November, three weeks after two bomb attacks in the capital, also blamed on the rebels. In early October, Rwanda also claimed to have arrested thirteen ADFs who were preparing attacks in the country.

Originally, the ADF was a coalition of Ugandan armed groups, the largest of which was made up of Muslims opposed to the regime of President Yoweri Museveni. They have been installed since 1995 in eastern Congolese, where they have established themselves.

RUKA / STOCKHOLM. She had a 13.7 second margin to go on.

However, that was not enough for a new victory for Frida Karlsson.

Therese Johaug took revenge in Sunday’s hunt start in Ruka, while Frida Karlsson had to settle for a second place.

– I still think I follow my plan and do what I can today, says Karlsson.

LIVE: Follow the winter sports – all the breaks here


After a lot of ups and downs, and above all enormous cold, it was finally ready to start in the ladies’ hunt start in Ruka.

And unlike the men’s race, which suffered from both Norwegian and Finnish dropouts due to the minus degrees on the thermometer, the best were there from the start on the women’s side.

Something that meant we got the duel that everyone had been waiting for.

Frida Karlssons success on Saturday, where she defeated the usually invincible Therese Johaug with a full 13.7 seconds, gave her pole position in the Finnish winter cold.

Norwegian revenge

A margin which, however, did not prove to be sufficient.

After keeping the lead for over half the race, Karlsson finally got to see himself passed by the Norwegian 33-year-old.

– I was just trying to focus on mine. That was the plan. Focus on what I can influence. The brain wanted a lot, but the legs were a little tired, says Karlsson in the mixed zone.

This was followed by the fact that a gap was also formed between the two victory combatants.

And even though Frida Karlsson then made sure that the gap did not grow into something too big, she also did not manage to nibble on the Norwegian sovereign.

– I am happy with the race, I do what I can. But Therese is strong today and then it is only to congratulate, says Karlsson.

“A perfect opening weekend”

Johaug herself also felt strong when she slid over the finish line in solitary majesty and was able to state that she had revenge.

– I had a very good day and very good skis. Yesterday I was not sure of my shape, but today I got an answer. I am so happy that I drove today and got this victory, says Johaug in the victory interview on TV6.

Frida Karlsson instead had to settle for second place, with a good margin down to other competitors. Which means she leaves Ruka with a first, second and a sixth place on the account.

– I would say a perfect opening weekend.

And you also get to keep the yellow leader vest …

– Yes, it suits me, right? Lol.

A vest she keeps in that she actually managed to beat Johaug once during the weekend.

How much does it mean that you leave here with that knowledge?

– Yes … No, I do not know. I hope you have not seen the best of me yet.

Andersson: “Did not have what was required”

The third place in the hunt start could have been Swedish with it. Ebba Andersson was for a long time in the group that competed for third place. But on the run-up to the riot, the Swede had to face competition.

– There were many other strong girls you went with and fought over that podium. I did not really have what was required there at the end, Andersson says to Sportbladet.

Heidi Weng took third place, after a remarkable climb from tenth starting position, while Andersson ended up in sixth place.

Souleyman Adam Bourma was 17 when he sought refuge in the sprawling Goz Amer refugee camp in eastern Chad, home to more than 250,000 Darfurians who have fled war in their homeland.

For half his life, Bourma, a once a farmer, has known no life beyond the fringes of the countryside, and he had little reason to believe that he ever would. Then he found football. Or more appropriately, soccer found it when Gabriel Stauring and Katie-Jay Scott, two South Bay activists, showed up in Goz Amer with a soccer ball.

Athletes are evaluated for Darfur United’s first men’s team roster in Djabal refugee camp in eastern Chad in 2012.

Bourma is among 22,000 refugees in 20 countries, from Chad and Tanzania, to Greece and the Central African Republic, who have seen their lives change since Stauring and Scott launched the Refugees United Soccer Academy in 2013. Now the future of that program is Uncertain after a fatal four-car car accident in Manhattan Beach claimed the lives of Stauring, Scott and elementary school principal Christian Mendoza on Tuesday.

?One measure of what they left behind is the hundreds of people who reached out to us in the last 24 hours and just asked ‘What can I do?’? Explained Ben Grossman, a board member of iACT, the non-profit organization. of profit that Stauring and Scott founded to fund jobs like Refugees United.

“They did so many things that they didn’t have a formal title,” Grossman said. “They asked about hugely important projects, some of which they couldn’t talk about because they were so dangerous.”

Growing crises around the world led many humanitarian organizations to leave Darfur, the western region of Sudan that was the focus of a war and ethnic cleansing against the mostly poor, non-Arab Sudanese that began nearly two decades ago. But Stauring and Scott stuck around, doubling down on their work with Refugees United Soccer Academy and other programs, like the Little Ripples child development program.

“We choose to go to the difficult places, the forgotten places,” said Stauring, who was 55 years old. “They all left Darfur and we determined that we were not going to leave.”

Stauring first visited Darfur in 2005 and returned 31 times to work with refugees, many of whom were born in the camps. She met Scott in Portland, where she was working on advocacy for Darfur. When she asked to join the fledgling aid program he had created, he agreed, as long as she could raise her own salary.

He did so, accompanying Stauring to Africa for the first time in 2008, a trip that was interrupted by an attempted coup. Two years later they married and settled in Redondo Beach, where they celebrated their 11th wedding anniversary in September with an iACT fundraiser.

Stauring and Scott, who grew up in Mexico and played college football at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington, introduced the sport to camps in 2012, leading Team Darfur, a team of adult Sudanese men, including Bourma, to an international tournament. .

The men struggled on the field, but the concept took hold, so a year later the couple launched an academy for boys. While keeping their promise to never leave Darfur, they expanded the program to Burundian refugees in Tanzania, Central Africans in Cameroon, and thousands of others in need, work that was organized and managed by a staff of five based in southern South Africa. California with an annual budget of less than $ 1 million.

The academies, designed to house up to 2,000 children who train or play for 60 to 90 minutes a day, five to six days a week, are primarily aimed at boys and girls ages 6 to 13. Next March, 10 girls between the ages of 13 and 17 were scheduled to travel to the Street Child World Cup in Qatar, where teams representing 21 countries will compete in a 7v7 tournament while learning to defend themselves on issues. such as access to education and other basic needs. That trip is now uncertain after Tuesday’s crash.

What Stauring and Scott, who was 40, lacked financial resources, they more than made up for thanks to the commitment and passion they inspired.

?They made the world better. They made me a better person, ?said Alecko Eskandarian, a former professional and ethnic Armenian soccer player who was working with iACT to bring a soccer program to his war-torn homeland. “The way they essentially look for people who need help, to see their passion, their disinterest was almost too good to be true.”

?It is a tremendous loss for all of us. If you had more people so they were just willing to drop everything to go help others, we would be in a much better place. “

Bringing football to refugee camps, where there is a shortage of food, clean water and housing, may seem like a case of misplaced priorities, but it was the opposite. Not only was the game cheap and easy to organize, it taught skills like teamwork and developed traits like confidence and self-esteem. It also empowered girls and women who were trained to make decisions for themselves.

?It totally changed my life because I learned more important things like respect, truth, relationships,? said Bourma, a Refugees United coach and coordinator who experienced unimaginable violence during the height of the conflict in Darfur. ?I became part of the world. For me, football is the future of the children of Darfur ?.

A recent grant from the UEFA Foundation for Children was to fund academies at four more camps, increasing the global reach of a program that began when Stauring and Scott carried a single soccer ball to a dusty corner of eastern Chad nine years ago. years. That expansion has been postponed as the iACT board figures out how to replace its irreplaceable leaders.

?They were the lifeblood of this. They were great people. They were passionate. They gave big hugs, physically and philosophically. You just wanted to be around them, ?Grossman said of Stauring and Scott, who left behind a 9-year-old daughter, Leila Paz, an 18-year-old son, Gabo, and a 25-year-old daughter, Noemi.

?They would want me to continue. They worked too hard and touched too many lives for it to end now. “
