As of now he has visited Pout & was greeted by many children with most of them wearing a shirt with Sergio's face on it (awwww!) . He went on to visit a UNICEF center that holds nutrition programs & also works as a center for mothers & babied. Sergio helped in weighing a newborn child , fed some other babies (cuteness overload!!) & administered some vaccinations .
Sergio expressed his happiness at being able to cooperate with the organization to help the people of Senegal. He was also pleasantly surprised by his popularity there, both as a Real Madrid player and as a recent World Cup winner. He said, “I’m happy to be here and help you all with my presence. I hope your living conditions get better quickly.”
As he visited Kayar , he was told that a mother had named her newborn twins Sergio & Rene. Both of them held the babies for a few moments.
The next stop was Keur Abdou Ndoye, where Sergio reassured the staff of UNICEF that he was perfectly comfortable with how the trip was progressing, and that the multitude of hugs he was receiving did not bother him. He insisted that he wanted to see everything, to know everything and to have contact with children. Sergio will be in Senegal till Sunday.
