Among the many heartfelt projects under the One Team umbrella, that of Galatasaray Live Hospital Istanbul to brighten the lives of young victims of the 2011 earthquake in Van, Turkey is particularly moving, as a letter from one of the children in the program attests. Van, a city of more than 350,000 people, saw 6,000 buildings destroyed and approximately 60,000 people left homeless by the earthquake, which hit with a magnitude of 7.1 on October 23, 2011.

Maly lives in Sari Yero, a small town in Kolda, the region with the highest rate of illiteracy in Senegal, where most of the population lives in extreme poverty.

The favorite subject for most young students in Kolda is physical education, and it is through that subject that One Team, the corporate social responsibility programme of Euroleague Basketball, has arrived to Africa.
