From Ecuadorean footballer rebuilds village by Judy Fladmark:
A South American footballer playing in the English Premiership is spending his high salary not on fast cars and big houses, but on rebuilding an entire community where he grew up.
Ulises de la Cruz, who plays at Reading, was born in the Afro-Ecuadorian village of Piquiucho.
It’s nice to see people giving back to their community and remembering their roots.
