‘He Told Us He’s Going to Play Football, We Miss Him’ – Orphanage Kids Tearfully Mourn Christian Atsu



Children from the Becky’s Foundation orphanage sobbed as they discussed the passing of their patron Christian Atsu.

Using his ambassadorial position at Arms Around the Child, Atsu adopted the children and parented them, enrolling them in school and occasionally giving them supplies and the help they needed.

According to a report from GHOne, the devastated kids were sobbing uncontrollably as they talked about the unceasing support they received from Atsu.

One of the boys told the reporter that Atsu was their father, brother, and uncle and that he gave them hope, but that they now have no hope.

Christian Atsu is like a father, an uncle, and a brother. In fact, he is our everything. He was our number one supporter doing countless things. He was the one giving us hope. Getting us better education and a lot of support. But as I speak to you today, we are hopeless and our heads are in our hands.”

One girl, full of tears and shaky voice, recounted the fun moments they had with Atsu, adding that she misses the former Newcastle United man.

“Every time he comes here they organise a party for us. Sometimes he sends us to Shoprite to enjoy ourselves. He said he is going to play football. I miss him so much.”

He provided a hand to persons who have been found guilty and penalized for minor offenses in addition to supporting children.

Along with The Crime Check Foundation in Ghana, Christian Atsu assisted the ex-convict reintegrate into society by paying fines for minor infractions that led to imprisonment.

He supported the non-custodial sentencing measure and paid the fees for 130 minor offenders.

Christian Atsu passed away in Turkey when his body was discovered on February18,2023, dead as a result of an earthquake that occurred in Hatay on February6, 2023.

His final goal came from a free kick against Kasimpasa in the 90th minute of his final game for Hatayspor, the night before the earthquake.
