Black Stars winger Samuel Owusu today (Saturday, March 28) donated 125 cartons of hand sanitizers to the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

Owusu, who celebrates his birthday today, has been vociferous in the national campaign against the spread of Coronavirus with recorded video messages on social media.

Speaking on behalf of the player, CEO of 'The Owusu project', Patrick Akoto said the donation is their little contribution to the bigger picture of fighting the pandemic

“The human race is facing a possible extinction and the world is in deep trouble due to this rampaging threat from Coronavirus so we saw the need to contribute our quota to this fight.”
