Christian Atsu reveals why he can't stop giving to Orphans

Ghanaian winger Christian Atsu has revealed the main reason behind his decision to donate to orphanage homes every year. 
The 25-year-old has been donating items including jerseys, footballs, boots and food to the less privilege children for the past years. 
The Newcastle United talisman who's father died when 13 years disclosed to a UK biggest newspaper, The Mirror his reasons to bring back smiles to the faces of orphans every year. 
He joined the St. James Park outfit from Chelsea on a permanent deal after his successful loan spell last season.
Atsu earned a call-up to feature for the senior national team of Ghana but has pulled out due to knee injury.
“I know where I came from so will always be grateful and try to give back to the community," Atsu told the Mirror Newspaper 
“I feel like everyone has to be happy and has the right to be happy. Before I reached this level I was supported. People need support in life to chase their dreams.
“In June I ordered some kit from Newcastle. I went to see the children back home, went to the school and the orphanage. They were happy to see to me.
“I believe that people don’t have ask to be in need. You have to see their need and be ready to help.
“I believe these kind of children, when they live on the streets and have nothing, some can become armed robbers. To prevent these things you have to give a better education.
“I like to go every summer. We have one kid called Desmond who is in a wheelchair and we want to help him get into work.
“I give them some books and some advice. It is pretty cool and a great honour for me to do.”
Atsu lost his father aged 13, and is one of 11 siblings. Playing against Liverpool on Sunday will hold no fear, only happiness.
“When I was young I played on the street. The dream was not to make money out of it or to help my family. But as I got older I realised it could change my life and help my family.
“I took Newcastle strips in the summer. We played football, 11 v 11. It made everyone happy.
“Some of the kids were playing bare-foot. I organised for them to have boots and you can see them improving
