The English Three Lions and Arsenal FC playmaker, Bukayo Saka has teamed up with BigShoe to cover 120 life-changing operations for children in Kano, Nigeria.
Most of the children who were treated were suffering from diseases like inguinal hernias, umbilical hernias and brain tumours. The surgeries took place last month.
Saka while reacting said:
“I feel blessed to be in a position where I can contribute to making the children’s lives better through these surgeries.”
Saka has strong Nigerian roots as both his parents were born there before they moved to the UK.
He is currently in Qatar representing the English and said his childhood dream to play at the World Cup has come true.
