Madieu Williams Does Good In His Home Country

At age nine, Madieu Williams and his family moved from their native Sierra Leone to the United States. After becoming a starting safety in the National Football League, he has proven that he’s never forgotten where he came from.

Williams made a $2 million donation last year to the University of Maryland to establish the Madieu Williams Center for Global Health Initiatives.
