Former U-17 World Cup winning skipper, Kelechi Nwakali, has revealed his plans to build a charity foundation in Nigeria to help less privileged kids grow up and have a reputable life in the society, AOIFootball.com reports.
The former Arsenal player, who visited hospitals and charity organizations to donate food items and gifs after helping the U-23 reach the AFCON Championship in Egypt, hopes to continue giving back to society.
“It’s always a thing of joy to help people when you have the capacity and opportunity to do so. I have always wanted to do stuff like this and this is just my own little way of giving back to the people.
“Growing up I realized that the government can’t always cater for the entire people so I feel those of us who have the opportunity can also support them too. Hopefully, soon I will also have my own foundation,” Nwakali said.
The 21-year-old is expected to hit Spain this week from England where he has been sorting our his travel papers as he begins life with LaLiga 2 side Huesca after completing a permanent move from Arsenal.
