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.
“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.
