Unless you've really been dodging the news of late, you'll have seen the images of destruction and heard the tragic stories of lives torn apart in Samoa.
Samoa, an island paradise in the Pacific Ocean, fell victim to a powerful Tsunami last week. Thus far the death toll stands at 120 with the majority of the deaths being women and children. Many more people are missing and unaccounted for.
For a nation with a population of only 180,000 this is a sad situation. Now the Samoan people face the mammoth task of rebuilding villages, schools, basically the whole country which has been destroyed by the Tsunami.
So, how can you help? You can play football, that's how! The Samoan community in the UAE are organising a touch rugby tournament to raise money this Saturday October 10. Here's how to be part of it...
