Tyson Fury has had the “humbling experience” of visiting a local orphanage while in Thailand for a boxing training camp. The Gypsy King, 34, visited the adorable children, alongside fellow professional boxer Issac Lowe, with the help of Bangkok-based foundation HDF Mercy Centre.

Fury posted a series of snaps to Instagram today (8 June), one of which showed him handing out lollipops to the young children. He wrote: “Today was a humbling experience as I visited an orphanage @hdf.mercycentre. Seeing the smiles on these kids’ faces reminded me of the importance of giving back. They are our future, and it’s our duty to nurture and support them. Spending time with these amazing kids reminded me of the power of love and the importance of giving back. As a father, I believe every child deserves a chance at a bright future. 💙”

The soon-to-be father-of-seven’s heartwarming caption continued: “As Nelson Mandela once said, "There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children." Let’s make a positive impact and help shape a brighter future for these incredible young souls. ❤️🤲 It’s not just a responsibility as a heavyweight champion, but also a pillar of my faith in Christianity to help those in need. Let’s all remember that every child deserves love, care, and opportunities to thrive.”

Lancaster-born boxer Issac also posted some sweet snaps to Instagram, writing: “Today really did take to me. We went to Bangkok orphanage to see the little kids. It really did open my eyes up and we don’t know how lucky we are to see these little kids faces to give them some drinks and sweets, 💙🌎 little things in life matter 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻”

HDF Mercy Centre is a charity foundation that has given education and community services to those in Bangkok’s largest slum for over 40 years. They work with the community to build and operate schools, improve health and welfare for families, protect street children’s rights, combat the AIDS crisis, respond to daily emergencies, and offer shelter to orphans.
