Moussa Dembele Donates 25 Celtic Jerseys to Team in Disadvantaged African City
Moussa Dembele donated 25 Celtic jerseys to a football team in the disadvantaged area of Djibouti City in East Africa.
The Hoops striker may be making headlines for his goalscoring form and link with a £20million move to English Premier League outfit West Ham this week.
But he's also earning plaudits for his charitable gesture in Djibouti - a country located in the Horn of Africa.
According to celticfc.net, Dembele's friends were sent with a strip care package after hearing of the poor conditions in Djibouti City.

So after seeing the FC Arhiba players kicking the ball about in the street, his pals gave out 25 Celtic jerseys with 'DEMBELE 10' on the back and made sure they got a picture together:
Dembele was born in France to Malian parents so is aware of the societal challenges for kids growing up in Africa.
It's a lovely gesture from the Celtic striker and the club, particularly a time when all the talk surrounds his future at the Parkhead club.
