Twente Stars Send Cash To Help SA Families

Two of FC Twente’s star players, Kamohelo Mokotjo and Hakim Ziyech, sent a large sum of money from Holland to help the lives of some young South Africans.
 
 
Mokotjo, who came through the youth ranks at SuperSport United before heading to the Netherlands as a teenager, and Ziyech, a Dutch attacking midfielder of Moroccan descent, heard of the plight of some of Mokotjo’s former teammates, and decided to do something about it.
 
The duo sent the money to South Africa on the proviso that the money was used to pay off debts, buy groceries, etc. - giving the beneficiaries the chance to get themselves back on their feet and back on track.
 
Tebello Mokotjo, Kamohelo’s brother, put a post on Facebook regarding the generosity of the pair, stating that Ziyech alone sent over R30,000 (around €2000) to Mzansi in order to try and offer some help from his side, with Mokotjo also putting some money in the pot. 
 
The money was then divided up between the youngsters, with Tebello making sure that it was used for the right purposes.
 
In an era where footballers are often known for their lavish lifestyles and expensive habits, the actions of these two shows a different side - a side that shows their desire to help those less fortunate than themselves.
