By: Valon Xoxa    December 23, 2014

“Basketistat” is a social club of Albanian professionals living in London. The club is known for its sport related activities, however, its true fame is acclaimed through the humanitarian events the club organizes.

This year Basketistat held a charity night on the 22nd of November that resulted with a donation of 6,500 euros. This sum is set to help 100 families in need with food packages throughout Albania and Kosovo. Alongside the success of gathering a greater donation than previous years, this year the club also expanded the territorial coverage of food distribution. Going beyond Mitrovica, the campaign reached  other towns and villages of Kosovo and for the first time brough supplies to the villages of Kukës,Albania.

Please join the Basketistat Facebook group for their future events:
