Kenyan national team captain, Tottenham Hotspur mainstay and of course friend of TackleAfrica, Victor Wanyama, recorded this very special message about the importance of getting tested for HIV this World AIDS Day. Victor is an ambassador for the fantastic Jersey 2 Africa 4 Football Foundation, and we extend our thanks to them.
Footballers are role models for so many young Africans, so hearing a Kenyan legend speak so passionately about the importance of testing is a massive boost for our work and the work of so many organisations across Africa.
This message went out on the BBC no less, and we’re thrilled Victor is part of the fight against HIV/AIDS.
As Victor says, “be an inspiration on and off the pitch – get HIV tested today!”
