As the entire world confronts the array of challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, Bhutan, a small landlocked kingdom in South Asia in the Eastern Himalayas, has managed to fight and contain the spread of the coronavirus due to extraordinary unity and determination.
De-suup, which means ‘orange warrior’, is the epitome of volunteerism and has become an integral part of the fight. The Bhutan Football Federation agreed to send 20 volunteers from various departments, including technical coaches, competitions, media and marketing and administrative workers, to participate in the noble cause.
“During these difficult times, we have to come together as a society. It gives me great joy and a sense of pride that our Federation staff, 14 men and six women, are currently serving our nation,” said Bhutan Football Federation President, Dasho Ugen Tsechup.
