Sebastian and Benedikt Haslbeck from Freising can be proud of this result: almost 3,500 balls were collected in the collection campaign for Tanzania.

Freising

– The collection campaign of the association “Mein Ball, Dein Ball eV” triggered a veritable flood of balls in the Donau/Isar football district.

Under the motto "A new life for your old balls", more than 1250 balls came together for the Mwanza region in Tanzania.

More than 20 clubs in the district took part in the campaign.

The goal for organizer Sebastian Haslbeck from Freising was to collect 2000 balls in the regions of Danube/Isar, Dachau, Rosenheim, Munich and the surrounding area.

It has become almost 3500. Most of them from the football field, but also basketball and volleyballs were there.

"We are very, very satisfied with the result and would like to thank everyone who helped with their ball donations," emphasizes Haslbeck, who, together with his brother Benedikt, collected the sports equipment in four larger car tours and then in the carport in Freising has stored.

“The clubs were great.

If we had agreed that we would come at 5:30 p.m., the balls were at the agreed place on time,” reports the student.

The balls arrive in Tanzania in mid-January

In the meantime, the playground equipment has been picked up by a large truck.

Freising was the first stop of the transporter, which drove via Stuttgart and other stations in Germany in the direction of Hamburg.

He has now arrived there.

The valuable freight was stowed in a container and then begins the journey by ship to Tanzania, where it will arrive in mid-January.

Sebastian Haslbeck will also travel to Mwanza again at the end of January and can then see for himself how the balls are made playable again on site.

(By the way: everything from the region is now also available in our regular Freising newsletter.)

Great result despite short lead time

Before that there will be a review of the campaign with all those involved in Germany in order to exchange experiences.

Basically, from his point of view, there were no major mistakes, says the 22-year-old sports scientist, but the action was very short-term.

"That couldn't be changed this time, because we were very spontaneously awarded the container by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development," says Sebastian Haslbeck.

"So everything had to happen quickly, the clubs only had two or three weeks.

We noticed that some of them needed more lead time.” These findings would now be evaluated and then a decision made as to whether and how there could be another campaign next summer.
