Asamoah Gyan presented a cheque of $10,000 to the Cardio Center of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital on Tuesday to mark the commencement of activities towards the 2015 Stars Soccer Fiesta.

The Black Stars captain through his Asamoah Gyan Foundation made the first of a series of planned social intervention activities to mark the return of the Soccer Fiesta which is climaxed with a fun game between professional football players and Ghanaian entertainers – mainly drawn from the music and movie industry.

Gyan in the company of Ghana FA Executive Committee member George Afriyie, Chief Executive Officer of the Asamoah Gyan Foundation, Samuel Anim Addo and leading Ghanaian musician Kwabena Kwabena presented the cash cheque to the National Director of the Cardiothoracic Center Dr. Lawrence Siriboe at a brief function.



‘I remember my last admission here [at Korle-Bu] was way back in 1999 so I have some memories about this place,’ the Al Ain said at the function.

‘Aside this [the donation] being part of the Star Soccer Fiesta, I enjoy giving back to society and I hope this goes a long way to help face some of the challenges of this unit.’

The delegation later proceeded to the Maternal Unit and Children’s Ward of the hospital to donate rice and noodles from Mama Vits, one of the companies owned by Asamoah Gyan.

This year’s Stars Soccer Fiesta is being used by the joint charity foundations of Asamoah Gyan and Emmanuel Adebayor to make vital social interventions through donations to needy institutions.
