Christian Atsu’s school building project receives over £3,000 in donations from fans
Fans have contributed massively to help complete a school building project started by Christian Atsu in his home country, Ghana

Arms Around the World, a charity organisation spearheading the project on behalf of the late footballer, have set a target of £40,000.
