    Covid-19: Black Stars player Thomas Partey join fight with donation to Ghanaian societies

    Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey has supplied his own branded face masks to help fight the spread of COVID-19 in his homeland of Ghana.

    The 27-year-old, who joined the Gunners from Atletico Madrid for £45million on transfer deadline day, donated the masks across towns in Ghana including Tema, Ashaiman and Odumase Krobo.

    This follows an earlier donation of masks Partey made seven months ago in the Eastern Region and Greater Accra region areas of the West African country, with homeless children, taxi drivers, young footballers and many others the beneficiaries of Partey’s generous donation.

    Partey’s charitable endeavours have also seen him cover the wages of the Spanish fourth division club he partly owns, Alcobendas Sport, in order for them to survive the economic consequences of the coronavirus pandemic and avoid a bailout from the Spanish government.

    football.london was told by a source close to the player that Partey ‘believes that every stakeholder has a role to play in combating the deadly virus’, which has seen over 50,000 cases and more than 300 deaths in Ghana alone.

    According to the vice captain of Ghana’s senior national team, ‘everybody must be protected from the virus and wearing the face mask is one of the important means towards this global battle’.
