The Komarock/Kayole and neighboring surrounding are densely populated and the majority of the
people are so poor that they have little or nothing to eat. Most live in homes surrounded by
uncollected garbage and human waste and blocked drains are a common problem.
All this contributes to the spread of chronic diseases such as malaria, cholera, tuberculosis (TB) and dysentery which are major causes of disability and even death. In addition to playing matches among other activities, the RSCS members undertake garbage cleanup and tree planting projects. Teams earn six league points for each completed project and an individual member earns two points.
