SBMF & HCF CLINIC DAY: So blessed to have worked closely with these hardworking kids today in Port-Harcourt, Rivers State, Nigeria. It rained in between skill work stations, we got wet, soaked and drenched but we persevered all through till it was dry out.
Unbelievable circumstances we faced but rewarding effort to getting better and working hard while sharing various life lessons. Hats off to all the Coaches and players. “You want people to meet you later in life as a good person not just a basketball player.” Bigger Than Hoop Dreams!

BIGGER THAN HOOP DREAMS: During the NBA Global Games 2016 in London England, Harry paid a visit to the Damilola Taylor Center, a community center for youth, a community named after the late Damilola Taylor.
“It was a great honour to visit the Damilola Taylor Center in Peckham, a Community Center named after a 10 year old Nigerian boy who was killed in November, 2000. Please click on the link (Damilola Taylor’s Death) below to know the full story. Who would know what may have become of Damilola if he had lived, I dedicated these Shirts to the Damilola Taylor Community Center on behalf of @harrycaresfoundation as the center has used Damilola’s demise as a teaching and avenue to ensure that the lives of other youth are not shorten but sustained for the better. We are all fortunate to be alive.”
