Event Coverage: Cortal SQR Pledges More Support for Philippine Football

The Homeless World Cup is an international street soccer competition that aims to address the causes of homelessness in countries where poverty still prevails. Its proponent country, Austria, initiated this endeavor nine years ago. This yearly competition attracts participants from various countries around the world including the Philippines where soccer football is slowly gaining popularity. In fact, our country has been represented at the Homeless World Cup for the past four years.

The JEEPNEY STREET SOCCER Team Philippines is the official country representative that will compete against different teams from all over the globe this coming Aug. 21-28 in Paris, France. Presently, the Jeepney team is being managed by Urban Opportunities for Change Foundation, a non-stock, non-profit NGO that advocates and executes programs for urban poverty transformation. Among their principal thrusts is the empowerment of the youth by exposing and training them to various sports activities particularly street soccer/football.

Pharma-Rex, Inc., the official marketer and distributor of newly formulated Cortal SQR, is one the most devoted partners of the country’s formidable football team, the Philippine Azkals. As part of the company’s corporate social responsibility through the pain reliever brand, Pharma-Rex Inc. has expressed support for the Jeepney street soccer team as well.

This was held at a function room of the Manila Polo Club in Forbes Park, Makati City.
