Mesut Ozil and fiancee mark wedding by funding 1,000 children’s operations

Arsenal star Ozil and Amine Gulse are supporting the BigShoe charity.

Mesut Ozil and his fiancee Amine Gulse are to mark their wedding day by funding surgery for 1,000 children.

The pair, who were set to marry on Friday, are making the donation via BigShoe, a charity which funds operations for kids in developing countries with conditions including cleft lips and palates, cataracts, heart defects and burns – and are encouraging others to give money instead of sending wedding gifts.

“Amine and I will bear the expenses for surgeries of 1,000 children in need. I’d be happy if in addition, many more treatments all over the world can be fulfilled.”
