We all remember the story of Arsenal and Germany star Mesut Ozil funding life saving surgery for 23 Brazilian children last year after the World Cup.
A year on, the 26-year-old is continuing his work in the South American country and has paid for more children to have operations – with a further 11 children benefiting from the German’s immense generosity.
The Arsenal play-maker has paid for 11 children to have surgery at a hospital in Coroata, in the north-eastern region of Maranhao, between 24 October and 7 November 2015, according to the German FA.
The Arsenal record signing said that he would continue to help children in the country through the Mesut Ozil Foundation in cooperation with aid programme BigShoe.
Even one year after we won the World Cup, I want to continue to leave a positive mark in Brazil by financing eleven more children’s operations.
For me it’s very important that I carry on providing help for the children of Brazil.
