Former Super Eagles captain Nwankwo Kanu has donated relief materials to residents of his home town in Owerri as part of his philanthropy desire to help others during this lockdown period due to coronavirus pandemic shaking the global economy.
Food items, sanitisers, soaps and protective equipment were donated in Imo state’s largest city, as nearby cities will also benefit in the coming days.
The two-time African Player of the Year has opened up on why he is a vanguard of a philanthropic drive amid the lockdown in the eastern part of Nigeria.
“I value life and more importantly I hate to see others suffer, so that was my major motivation for choosing to embark on this project,” Kanu told Goal.
“This is my own little way of reaching out to the struggling families during this trying period and also to show them that my heart is always with them.”
