The former under 20 world cup winner who plies his trade in Ascoli Calcio in the Italian serie B set up a foundation to support the less privilege in society.
The foundation which is yet to be launched has been in existence for almost three years and now looks beyond it’s scope to reach out the Ghana Skate Soccer Federation on Saturday 26th January.
C.E.O of the Ghana Skate Soccer Federation Albert Frimpong who received the set of jerseys on behalf of the Federation expressed his shock at the generous gesture of the footballer.
“Today 27th of January was our first training session for the year 2019 and we were surprisingly presented with some beautiful jerseys by Bright Addae.
“Skate Soccer Ghana and the international federation of skate soccer (IFSS) really appreciate his kind gesture”.
The IFSS is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) committed to the development of the physically challenged especially polio victims, through sports in Africa.
The ultimate goal of IFSS is to support these physically challenged individuals to play the game at the highest level and participate in the Paralympics and help institute a Global Polio Fund which would cater for polio victims in Africa and the other parts of the World.
Meanwhile the general secretary of the ‘Bright Addae foundation’ Dickson Boadi helm the donation and spoke on behalf of the founder.
“This is to Addae’s show commitment and dedication to the Skate Soccer project in his motherland.
“He looks forward to coming down in May this year with a major donation that will cover both Accra and Kumasi teams”.
On the other hand, Ghana Skate Soccer has already resumed training and looking toward major tournaments ahead.
