Former Black Stars attacker Kevin Prince Boateng has offered to provide aid to the affected families and players in the recent Offinso tragedy.
The ex-Barcelona striker made his intentions known in an interview with Joy Fm on Monday night.
“I heard about it and it made me really sad, I heard it on
social media then I called a friend of mine to ask them if it’s really true and
what happened. He told me about it and I really feel sad about it because I
have two kids on my own, one is 12, one is 6 and I think it’s a big tragedy. It
hit me hard, KP Boateng lamented.
He added, “I googled it to want to see more about it but every more detail about it makes you more sad about it so that is why I’m here to talk to you and to let you know that I want to help.”
“Anything, if they want, I will like to help. I will like to get in touch with the families. I want to make them to feel free. I know it’s hard and I can’t imagine how hard it is for parents to bury their kids but I just want to help them to free their mind just to enjoy the lives they had with their kids and free their mind,” the former AC Milan player affirmed.
“I want to help in burying or celebration. Whatever they want to do I want to be here to help.” KP Boateng said sorrowfully.
KP Boateng who recently signed for FC Monza in the Italian Serie B was desirous of getting in touch with any of the bereaved families.
“My condolences to all the families who have lost their children and happy for the other children who made it out safe from the hospital. We keep in touch and please let me know what I can do and I will be ready to help,” he concluded.
Boateng played 15 times for Ghana and scored two goals for the Black Stars. He was born by a Ghanaian father and a German mother.
