Watford forward Danny Welbeck has donated a £10,000 relief package to the residents of his mother’s home town in Ghana as the coronavirus pandemic continues to impact the global economy.

The relief package distributed to residents of Nkawiepanin in the Atwima Nwabiagya municipality of the west African nation includes food, sanitary items and sanitizers.

Personal protective equipment (PPE) was also donated to the doctors and nurses in Nkawie Government Hospital in the Ashanti region.

As of Sunday, Ghana has recorded 566 cases of Covid-19 – the most in West Africa – while the government has extended its partial lockdown in some major cities by a week.

The donation was made in person by Welbeck’s aunt, Charlotte Adwoa Tumutuom, who spoke of the 29-year-old’s love for Ghana.

“Danny has been very concerned about how his people would survive these trying times,” Tumutuom told Ghanaian news website Pulse. “Though he has never lived here, he has a great affection for the people of Ghana, so he felt it prudent to offer some help in the very small way that he can to support the government’s efforts in these times.”
