Arsenal and England forward, Bukayo Saka has sponsored the surgeries of 120 children in Nigeria.
This was disclosed by BigShoe, the charity organisation who partnered with Saka to help poor children with medical operations, on Thursday.
It also revealed that the children had their surgeries at the Prime Specialist Hospital in Kano State.
In a tweet, the organisation wrote: “Proud to announce our newest BigShoe family member: @BukayoSaka87 In front of the World Cup 2022 we’ve covered 120 life-changing surgeries for children in Kano, Nigeria. A big thank you to the doctors and team of the Prime Specialist Hospital.”
In his remark, Saka said he is always happy to help children facing challenges achieve their dreams.
“For me, every child has the same opportunity to achieve their dreams and if I can really do anything to help, it’s really important for me to do this,” he said.
“It makes me very happy, especially when I see the kids are happy, the parents are happy. I just want to more and more as much as I can.”
Saka was born in England to Nigerian parents, making eligible to play for both nations, but he chose the Three Lions over the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
