After words, actions. On his Twitter account, Bryan Soumaré, the Dijon midfielder, loaned to Sochaux this season, announced this weekend that he had funded 300 packed lunches available in Saint-Quentin (Aisne), his hometown.
“Following my post on social networks, I funded 300 packed lunches which are available in Saint-Quentin (Aisne) for families in need, he said. If this is your case and you are in need, just send me a message so that I will send you the address to come and pick up your bag. “
A professional player since 2019, Bryan Soumaré has not always had it easy. Last Monday, he therefore decided to make a call on Twitter to offer to offer food to people in need due to the crisis linked to the Covid-19 epidemic.
“If in the situation we live in you can’t work and you don’t have to eat, don’t hesitate and be ashamed to write to me in private. […] Do not go to bed and even less with your children, without eating, ”he wrote on Twitter on Monday.
Faced with the success of his initiative, relayed by the clubs of Dijon and Sochaux and by players such as Rennais James Léa-Siliki or Sevilla defender FC Jules Koundé, Soumaré, his agents and Rachid Mourabit, his former partner at the Olympic Saint-Quentin, have decided to launch an online jackpot on Tuesday. She had already raised more than 3,000 euros in the afternoon. And four days later this sum turns into 300 packed lunches. A great success.
