Germany Player Visits Refugee Camp
Germany might be quiet on the football front recently, but its players are still remembered as one of the best players in the Premier League. One such instance is Ozil.
He is considered one of the best players in the English Premier League. Being a star and associated with Germany and Arsenal club, Mesut Ozil does wonders wherever he goes. He recently visited a Zaatari Refugee Camp. Located in Jordan, it was a courtesy gesture from his end to extend his goodwill and provide necessary donations to the refugees.
Mesut is best known for his midfielder position in Arsenal. He was on tour of the camp and was told about the conditions that the refugees were facing at the camp by UNHCR which is the United Nations High Commissioner of Refugees. He was greeted by the children with much enthusiasm. This visit was part of the social development program where soccer players participate in. The Asian Football Development Project has been running several programs for Northern Jordan and the camps here since 2012. A Syrian football coach stated that an Ozil’s visit showcased the fact that stars like him did think about refugees in Syria and what is happening to them. With a player like Ozil coming to the camp it provides a lot of motivation for the children. The fact that such people care is a big thing for many.
Ozil not only visited the camp but also played with the children. It was indeed a great opportunity for the children to find a star player among them, giving out signed jerseys and other goodies to them. Several people felt that it was indeed a great gesture from the star player. There were many who even owned a Real Madrid jersey and showcased the same to Ozil who had played for the team once.
