UFC champion Israel Adesanya, has donated medical equipment to Lagos state, to help deal with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
He is donating personal protective equipment to staff in Auckland, and Lagos in Nigeria where he was born.
He also provided 10,000 three-ply face masks and 1,000 eye protection face shields with his own money to healthcare workers at Whanganui Hospital in New Zealand – his mother is a nurse working in the emergency department of the hospital.
Adesanya said it is a small way of helping, but a small thing can go a long way.
“I can’t do it for the whole world, but I can help the communities I know, the places that I have been a part of.”
