Former German-Ghanaian footballer Gerald Asamoah and his team of surgeons have successfully performed heart surgeries on a dozen children in Ghana in just two days.

The ex-SpVgg Greuther Fürth forward who flew about 50 surgeons from Germany to Ghana two days ago have miraculously performed 12 surgeries already.

His foundation, Gerald Asamoah Stiftung, together with the Kinderherzen foundation and surgeon Evangelist Klinikum Niederrhein made this possible.

According to Gerald, 12 children were helped through surgery or catheter procedures at the University of Ghana Medical Centre in Accra.

He congratulated the surgeons for this feat, saying: “A huge well done to the medical team for volunteering so amazingly!”

Gerald Asamoah played 43 matches for the German national team before retiring. He never played for the Ghana Black Stars despite being born in Mampong, Ghana, before relocating to Germany at an early age. He is also the first African player to play for Germany.

Gerald Asamoah is married to Linda Asamoah. The couple have two children; twins
Jada Asamoah and Jaden Asamoah; and daughter Jerilynn Asamoah.
