Philanthropist Today... Meet Sadio Mane: The Soccer Icon Who Donated Over #300 Million To Build Hospital For His People In Senegal
"The value of life is not in its duration, but in its donation. You are not important because of how long you live, you are important because of how effective you live"-Myles Munroe
• He needs little or no introduction in today's sporting and humanitarian world - a super giver of hope to the hopeless globally
He is Sadio Mané ,the Senegalese top professional footballer who plays as a winger for Premier League club Liverpool and the Senegal national team.
Regarded as one of the best players in the world, Mané finished fourth for the 2019 Ballon d'Or, and in the award for the Best FIFA Men's Player he ranked fifth in 2019 and fourth in 2020.
But beyond soccer, he is free giver and only this week ,he moved again
We can expand his gesture by confirming that after funding the building of a hospital that will serve his hometown, the 29-year-old met with the President of Senegal to seek a contribution of medical personnel.
Hospital fact file has it that more than N317m was donated by Mane for its construction from start to its final finishing
After meeting with the president, Mane and few other VIP then inaugurated the hospital amidst pomp & pageantry
The hospital is the first medical facility in the area - consisting of an A&E department, maternity care, dental facilities and consulting rooms - will serve 34 villages in the surrounding area of Bambali.
“This hospital is obtained thanks to you, and it is for you, the population of Sédhiou,”' Mane said in a statement released to declare the hospital open
It is not the first time Mane has helped fund infrastructure projects in Bambali.
He funded the building of a secondary school as well as a supermarket which is named after him.
Mane is also interested in funding more projects in the future in the surrounding area of Bambali, including a post office and a petrol station.
World Industry leaders magazine can confirm that Mane generosity knows no bound, and at a time that healthcare has never been so important, Mane's new gesture is no doubt very timely and we wish him all the very best in all his present and future endeavours
