Abdi is a 19 year old member of the Kenyan national Karate team. He has won medals in the Provincial Championship (Kata category, 2010 & 2011) and the Junior National Championships (2009).
Abdi lives in a slum called Korogocho, just outside Kenya’s capital Nairobi. Around 200,000 people are squeezed into this small area of 1.5 square kilometres. His story is incredible, and it is a CAFOD project that has enabled him to find hope through sport.
