Arsenal’s Community Shield Win Inspires South Sudan Fans To Charity Events


South Sudanese fans of English Premier League club Arsenal have planned a series of charity events to celebrate the team’s win of the pre-season Community Shield.

Over the weekend the fans helped clean Al-Sabbah Children’s Hospital in the capital, Juba, as a sign of solidarity with the country’s children who have suffered after years of conflict.

“We will be delivering beds, mattresses and bed sheets in two weeks’ time. Children are the future of the country,” Sebit William Ker, a journalist working for UN sponsored Radio Miraya and chairperson of Arsenal fans in South Sudan, told the BBC on Wednesday.

Established by the Kuwaiti government in 1983, Al-Sabbah is the only specialised and referral children’s hospital in South Sudan.

Mr Ker said the fans will be conducting a number of humanitarian activities during the Covid-19 pandemic.
