The former Chelsea and Trabzonspor midfielder is playing a role in helping the poorest households in Nigeria survive the effects of the coronavirus
In helping people survive the hardship caused by the coronavirus pandemic, former Nigeria captain John Obi Mikel has distributed 1800 crates of eggs to vulnerable households in Nigeria.
Mikel revealed that the distribution was carried out by his team, who left crates of eggs at the doorsteps of people’s houses.
The ex-Super Eagle is the latest star to help people in Africa after Danny Welbeck donated relief packages worth over £10,000 to a community in Ghana and Wilfried Zaha offered food items, soap and clothes worth over £60,000 to people in Ivory Coast.
“Helping people to survive in these difficult times my team today distributed 1800 cases of fresh eggs to some of the poorest areas in Nigeria close to the farm. Let’s all try and help one another in this global crisis in anyway possible,” Mikel wrote on Instagram.
