Karim Adeyemi Foundation, a charity organisation founded by Nigerian-German footballer Karim Adeyemi, has donated a 24-seater bus to Adeyemi FC of Ibadan.

Adeyemi’s father and president of the foundation Abiodun Adeyemi handed the key of the bus to head coach of Adeyemi FC Emmanuel Damilare on Friday, February 10 at the foundation’s head office in Ibadan.

According to the senior Adeyemi, the handing over was in fulfilment of a request made by one of the club’s players during a meet and greet with Karim in December 2022.

Kareem is the foundation’s icon.

His father explained that the provision of the bus is in line with the foundation’s aspirations for the club.

Karim Adeyemi Foundation is a registered non-governmental organisation based in Nigeria.

It relies on funding from Karim, who plays for the German national team and Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga.

Adeyemi FC is a football club registered with the Oyo State Football Association and Nigeria Football Federation.

It is funded by Karim Adeyemi Foundation to support the dreams of talented footballers in underserved communities.

Karim was man of the match as his German club beat English club Chelsea in their Champions League last-16 first-leg tie on Wednesday.

The 21-year-old scored a brilliant solo goal to condemn Chelsea to a 1-0 defeat.

Speaking after the match, the player said he got the speed with which he was able to outrun Chelsea’s Enzo Fernandez and beat goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga from eating Nigerian fufu.
