International fitness trainer Modu Seye visited his hometown of M`Bour, Senegal this week to give back to the community, and in doing so this amazing philanthropist raised 1 million dollars of Senegalese currency to assist a local orphanage.
Los Angeles, California- International fitness trainer Modu Seye may be known throughout the industry as one of the leading trainers in the world, but many that know him personally know how important charity work is to Modu. Last week, Modu took his nine-year-old son Abdoul back to the place that he was born, M`Bour, Senegal. While visiting the area, Modu showed his son what it was like to grow up in Africa, and ended their trip with an extensive visit to a local orphanage.
International fitness trainer Modu Seye recognizes the importance of giving back to those that are less fortunate. In Senegal, there are almost half a million orphans in the country, and all of which are under the age of 14. This is a large number of children that rely on local orphanages and support so that they can survive. These orphans typically have one parent that is living, but the families can`t afford to take care of the children. Modu decided to donate t an orphanage that was an hour and a half from where he grew up, located in the city of Dakar.
Modu Seye and his son arrived at the Vivre Ensemble, which is operated by the French, and supports 200 orphans. Before their arrival Modu had organized a collection of milk, diapers, and medicine so that he could donate supplies as well as money. Many of the newborns that reside at this orphanage will be returned to their parents when they reach the age of 2 because they are less expensive to raise. However, it is still hard for orphanages to find the necessary supplies to care for all of these children.
International fitness trainer Modu Seye not only arrived with supplies but also raised 1 million CFA for the Vivre Ensemble orphanage. This money will help the orphanage purchase things that the children really need, as well as enabling this orphanage to keep their doors open. Modu made sure to take his son with him so that Abdoul could see his roots and where the roots of his family lie. There are many societal differences between America and Africa and none are more obvious when sitting in the orphanage in Senegal. Modu stated that it was important for his son to know where he came from so he could appreciate all he has, and learn about his background.
International fitness trainer Modu Seye is generally shaping bodies in the gym, but he enjoys using his social status to give back to those in need. It`s great to see celebrities that are interesting in giving back to the community and support those that are less fortunate. Those interested in donating to this cause can get in touch with Moduvated for additional information.
