Saka Identifies With Nigeria, Funds 120 Children Surgery

Arsenal and England star Bukayo Saka has helped fund 120 life-changing operations for children in Nigeria.

Saka, 21, is preparing to take part in his first World Cup after earning a call-up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad – but that hasn’t distracted him from matters elsewhere.

In cooperation with youth charity BigShoe, the winger played a crucial role in medical procedures for children of Kano that occurred last month.

Saka’s actions come as a response to issues concerning diseases like inguinal hernias or brain tumours in Nigeria.

Speaking on the matter, the 21-year-old said: “I feel blessed to be in a position where I can contribute to making the children’s lives easier and better through these surgeries.

“I still feel very connected to Nigeria. For me, it is very important to use my abilities to have a positive impact where I can and I have to say a big thank you to the whole BigShoe team for making this possible.

“For me it is important that every child has the same opportunity to achieve their dreams.

“If I can do anything to help then I really want to do this, it is very important to me. It makes me happy when I can see the kids happy and their parents happy.

“I want to do more and more and help as many children as I can.”
