It follows on from the news we brought you yesterday that Rudiger has funded meals for nurses at the Berlin hospital where he was born for the next three months.

The defender is now turning his philanthropic focus to the West African country his mother hails from, Sierra Leone. His personal foundation, Antonio Rudiger For Sierra Leone, is partnering with a local designer called Madam Wokie and the charity Lunch Box Gift to make and distribute 60,000 face masks in the capital Freetown.

 

As Rudiger put it on his Twitter page, ‘this will hopefully reduce the spread of Covid-19’ in what is the most populous and dense city in the country, and where community based transmission is reported to be increasingly rapidly.
