Supporters of Newcastle United where the late Christian Atsu played have made contributions to a school-building project he started in Ghana.
Christian Atsu began the construction of a school complex for orphans in Senya Bereku. Upon his death, it has been feared that the construction will cease but fans of his former club have given the project a new lease of life by raising 3,000.00 pounds sterling in less than 48 hours.
Arms Around the World is the charity organization that is leading the efforts to build the school. It is estimated that about 40,000.00 pounds sterling is required to complete the project.
Atsu featured 120 times for the Magpies after he moved there from Chelsea. He has also been involved in other charity works like paying off fines of persons held in prison custody in order to free them.
The Ghana winger was known for his charitable works and his death is a great loss not only to his family but to the community and fans alike.
