Brighton new signing Leon Balogun and Bursaspor’s William Troost Ekong lend a hand to present food items to children ahead of their outing on Monday against Democratic Republic of Congo.
The Super Eagles stars visited the Mother Charles Walker Children’s Home, Anua in Akwa Ibom on Saturday to interact with the kids and donated food items to the children.
The national team players went straight to the Children’s Home ahead of Monday’s friendly against Democratic Republic of Congo in Port Harcourt.
The central defenders presented the items to the children in the presence of their custodians.
“We have come here to join these lovely kids to encourage them that there are many better days ahead,” Balogun said.
“The kids are lovely. They look up to us the Super Eagles stars as role models and it is only right that when we come here we spent some of our time with them and encourage them.”
As part of their mission to give back to society, the “Oyinbo Combo” visited children to encourage the kids and give them material support.
Balogun and Ekong are expected to make the Super Eagles’ 23-man to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
