Since I liked soccer too, we played together.” He continued with, “I brought a Polaroid camera with me to take pictures, along with some school supplies, since I heard they have shortage of those things. I gave out the Polaroid pictures to the children. Now that I’ve visited once, I have a better idea of what they need the most. I’m also thankful to my fans who want to help out as well.”
