As moms it’s only natural for us to want the best for our kids. As our kids get older and begin to have their own dreams we want to support them and see them succeed, no matter the odds or obstacles to overcome.

Mekfah, a top student and lover of football (soccer) from Bangkok, recently got to live out one of his dreams: he traveled to Kuala Lumpur to meet the world famous Liverpool Football Club during their game against the Malaysia XI team.
