Sonny Bill Williams will sit out the Blues’ match against the Highlanders on Friday after last week’s terror attacks in Christchurch.
Williams will travel to Christchurch to raise funds for the families of the victims in the deadly attacks at two mosques last Friday that left 50 people dead and 50 injured.
The 33-year-old has teamed up with non-profit charity organisation Muslims Around the World (MATW) that helps disadvantaged Muslims around the world.
Thank you everyone for your kind hearts. We will be in Christchurch later in the week to show love and give donations to the Christchurch Masjids for the people effected in this tragedy. My heart is heavy ?❤?? please don’t stop showing your support.
