Ghana striker Jordan Ayew donated several bags of foodstuff and household items to the orphans of the 1994 Genocide against Tutsi living at Gisimba memorial center school in Nyamirambo.
The Aston Villa star also bought 30 match tickets for some of the orphans to watch the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations Group H qualifier between Rwanda and Ghana, which Amavubi lost 1-0 on Saturday at Amahoro National Stadium.
“I wanted to help young people and give them courage for the future life that’s why I visited them and gave them something to eat,” the 23-year forward said after the match.
About the game itself, Ayew, the young brother of Andre Ayew, who captained the Black Stars on Saturday, noted that, “It was a good game because we won. To come to Kigali and get a good result is not easy, so we have to be happy with the three points; it puts us in a good position.”
Meanwhile, Swansea City forward Andre Ayew Dede commended Amavubi players for their performance despite not getting anything from the game on Saturday. A late Mubarak Wakaso strike ensured the Black Stars continued their unbeaten run.
“We have faced a tough Rwanda side; the players gave their best to win the game, and so they deserve respect for their performance. We tried to play our normal game but it was hard because they (AmavubI) made it very difficult for us but thankfully we have the three points,” stated the former Marseille midfielder.
