Luol Deng Signs Up to Support Deki
For basketball fans, Luol Deng will need no introduction. Deki is delighted to announce our new partnership with the 2 x NBA all-star player, Britain’s highest paid sporting export. Luol was born in Wau, in what is now South Sudan, but fled during the civil war at the age of 7 and became a British citizen, before taking America by storm with his talents. Luol set up his foundation, the Luol Deng Foundation, to help bring desperately needed support to South Sudan, where people typically live on less than $1 a day. Luol is now actively working alongside Deki to change the lives of as many South Sudanese people as possible.
If you’re a huge Luol fan like us (and Barack Obama, who recently listed the athlete as one of his favourite sportsmen ever!) and want to get involved, go here to donate or join Luol’s Lending Team on the Deki website.
