Henry Olonga endorses Goal50
Henry Olonga, the former professional cricketer who played Test cricket for Zimbabwe has endorsed Goal50.
Henry says, 'Goal50 is a charity that I have no hesitation endorsing. The vision of feeding poor people and housing vulnerable orphans in South Africa with the aim of empowering them to their full potential is a fantastic cause. I give Goal50 two thumbs up in what they are seeking to achieve and hope that you would support them in any way possible.'
When Henry made his Test debut in January 1995, he was the first black cricketer - and the youngest person - to play for Zimbabwe. His international career came to an end in 2003 after he and team mate Andy Flower wore black armbands during an international cricket match in the 2003 Cricket World Cup to "mourn the death of democracy" in Zimbabwe. Death threats forced him to live in exile in England. He is now pursuing a career as a cricket commentator, Christian speaker and singer.
