Victor Wanyama is the key in Montreal Impact's squad. For Thierry Henry, his head coach, the presence of the Kenyan soccer player is fundamental to give a fierce structure to the team. Also because of his versatility and his commitment. That commitment he has taken it outside fields with a foundation.

Wanyama had to live different situations that marked his life. His difficult life in Kenya made him absorb a strong personality that today he shows it in soccer games. After playing in Belgium and Scotland, he made his biggest jump by playing in the English Premier League in Southampton and Tottenham Hotspurs. In March, he joined the MLS.

The central midfielder who can also play as a centre back in defense doesn't forget about his roots and his childhood. In this way, he created a foundation that has played a key role in helping Kenyans during the global pandemic. “The Foundation has been going around the ghettos and the slums of Kenya. As you know, one of the biggest slums in the world is in Kenya,” Wanyama, told Impact Media.
