Birmingham whiz Bellingham organising football kits for Kenyan kids

Manchester United and Chelsea target Jude Bellingham is organising football kits for kids in Kenya.

The Birmingham City wonderkid is wanted by both Premier League giants.

And it's emerged the 16-year-old helps out with The Mustard Seed Project, a charity supporting underprivileged children in Kenya.

Bellingham has helped purchase royal blue Adidas football kits for youngsters in the Mombasa slums, while he hopes to finish off building a brand-new classroom for the local 275-pupil school.

Rita and Geoff Fowler founded The Mustard Seed Project 11 years ago.

"His father, Mark, works with my daughter and she was talking to him about the charity," Rita, 73, told The Sun.

"Mark mentioned it to Jude and he showed no hesitation wanting to come on board. He's such a lovely guy and he's so interested.

"He's so kind and caring. I can't speak highly enough of him."
