The names on Zlatan Ibrahimovic's body now have faces too. 

The Swedish superstar made global waves last month when he removed his shirt after scoring for PSG to reveal a temporary tattoo of 50 names of starving children.

His effort to raise awareness of the issue was a success, as the story went viral and was shared worldwide. 

But the message reached those he aimed to help too. 

Wale Wale Kenya, the organisation targeted, produced a touching video with a handful of the children affected, who both shed light on their everyday struggle and thank Ibrahimovic for his efforts.
