Senegalese football player Sadio Mane, who plays for Liverpool, has donated $693,000 (£500,000) to support the building of a hospital in his hometown of Bambali.

There used to be no hospital in the hamlet, which is located 400 kilometers outside of Dakar, the capital.

Mane discussed the project, which will include maternity care, dental treatment, and consulting rooms, with Senegalese President Macky Sall earlier this month.

The official account for the presidency tweeted in June, “The Liverpool striker has presented the Head of State with an ambitious plan to build a hospital in Bambali and is counting on state support for medical personnel.”

“Very honored by the audience that the Head of State, His Excellency @Macky_Sall granted me,” tweeted Mane, expressing his enthusiasm for the initiative. A excellent opportunity to talk about our social efforts as well as football.

Mane gave over $350,000 (£250,000) in 2019 to help construct a school in Bambali. In addition, he gave 300 Liverpool shirts to his hometown the year prior so that the locals may wear them at the Champions League final.
