Chelsea star Hudson-Odoi has been making the most of his summer time-off as he is still on his Ghana trip, after a visit to his father’s country for the first time in over a decade.
Callum Hudson-Odoi has been visiting local communities and meeting influential people to help in any way he can.
Below is the highlights of Hudson-Odoi’s difference-making trip to Ghana;
Donating supplies to foodbank: The 20-year-old has donated ‘vital supplies to foodbanks’ across the nation, as reported on Chelseafc.com.
Visiting local schools: Chelsea star Hudson-Odoi wants to connect with the youth of the nation and has visited several schools during his time in Ghana’s capital, Accra, even being treated to an impromptu welcome chorus at one event.
Meeting important people to discuss various matters: Chelseafc.com writes: “Hudson-Odoi has plans to further his charitable endeavors in Accra and spent time meeting the tourism and sports ministers, discussing with them his hope of inspiring the next generation of Ghanaian footballers and improving grassroots facilities across the country.”
The president of Ghana Nana Akufo-Addo, also met Hudson-Odoi as they discussed ways to better the football infrastructure.
Playing charity games: After visiting his father’s former club, Heart of Oaks, the youngster then got involved in some charity games with the locals, raising funds for nearby schools.
Reportedly, Hudson-Odoi has more trips planned to the country as he aims to ‘give something back to a country that has played such an important, albeit indirect, role in his own football career’.
He might be only 20 years of age, but has already become a man for the people as gestures and acts like these mean a lot to the citizens of the African nation!
