Prince Ali Bin Al-Hussein and Michael Johnson join Find A Better Way at Old Trafford

World and Olympic record holder Michael Johnson and FIFA Vice President Prince Ali Bin Al-Hussein of Jordan joined Find A Better Way founder Sir Bobby Charlton and guests for an exclusive dinner at Manchester United.

The Old Trafford event was held to raise awareness of the work of Find A Better Way and to forge links between our charity and the invited guests.

Chairman John Edees, Chief Executive Martin Dansey and Ambassador Giles Duley were also on hand to meet guests and explain the
work of Find A Better Way.

Find A Better Way is a humanitarian charity committed to improving the lives of individuals and communities affected by landmines. Uniquely the charity works with leading UK scientists and engineers to develop technology to accelerate the detection and safe removal of landmines globally. The charity also works to raise funds to help education projects in areas scarred by landmines and to aid innovative humanitarian projects designed to help victims recover from their injuries and rebuild their lives.

Perhaps the most prolific guest was Prince Ali Bin Al-Hussein of Jordan, son of the late King Hussein of Jordan and Vice President of FIFA. The Prince was appointed the role of Vice President in 2010. During the election process, Prince Ali’s campaign focused on change, football ideals and raising the profile of Asian countries within FIFA.

The event was a success and Find A Better Way have forged some valuable links between themselves and the guests.
