Chiluya practices ‘Bola na Lesa’ donates to an orphanage
Zambia U20 national team that won the 2017 African Youth Championships for the first time in the history of Zambia had the catchy slogan ‘Bola na Lesa’ which means football with God.
One of the key players of Coach Beston Chambeshi’s team was left back Prosper Chiluya who you easily recognise by his trademark smile.
And earlier this month, The Bethlehem Steel player took it upon himself to pass along his smile to dozens of children back home in Zambia when he teamed up with a former teammate in Cyprus, Gabriel “Biel” Company to donate supplies to an orphanage in George Compound, Lusaka.
“It’s one of the most important things that I’ve done. It’s a very small place, they support both boys and girls who don’t have parents and they always need food, clothes and other items,” Chiluya told Bethlehem Steel official website.

Chiluya would gladly struggle himself to see someone else smiling. The talented left back has big plans for his future in humanitarian activities with building a orphanage.
“Being able to give back brings joy to me, I feel happy to see those people smiling. I feel so good to see someone smiling; I’d rather struggle and see someone else smiling. Joy, happiness, all those things are how I would describe giving back,” Chiluya said.
“One day if I could get stable with my career, I wanted to pass on my luck and success to them. There are many other places where there are people struggling so I still have places to help out. I know that one day when God blesses me, I’ll be able to help those people and places. My ultimate goal would be building an orphanage in Zambia where we could have teachers and doctors there to support all kids and provide them the foundation for a good life and hopefully smile like I do. I hope that it gets to happen one day, it’s my biggest prayer that I’ll be able to give back.”
The gesture from the the Kafue Celtic product has not gone unnoticed with many both in the USA and back home applauding him for the donation.

Chiluya sent funds to his parents to buy the needed assorted goods which they took to the orphanage and later sent the 20 year old photos.
