The Senegalese international, Sadio Mané, proceeded this Sunday, June 20, 2021 to the inauguration of a hospital which he personally financed the construction. The jewel, located in the heart of the attacker’s native village of Liverpool, cost 350 million FCFA with it. The work was launched in 2019 after the initiative of the Senegalese number 10 to remedy the difficulties related to the access to health care of the inhabitants of his village, located about fifteen kilometers southeast of Sédhiou. The new hospital was handed over to the State of Senegal after a hearing on Thursday, June 10 with the Head of State Macky Sall.
Liverpool Reds attacker Sadio Mané inaugurated the hospital he himself built in his home village of Bambali. The ceremony took place this Sunday, June 20, 2021 in the presence of Sadio Mané, currently on vacation, the various local, administrative and customary authorities as well as partners such as La Poste Group, Air Senegal, Senelec and Casa eau.
This gesture by the footballer pleased the 2,000 inhabitants of this landlocked village where access to health care has always been a real problem. Sadio Mané not only thought about his native village, he offered the hospital to the State of Senegal, a way to show that it is a public building intended for all Senegalese citizens. This health centre will polarize more than 34 villages. The hospital consists of a maternity ward, an infirmary, an operating room, a morgue and other rooms dedicated to the management of different pathologies.
Sadio Mané, smiling, thanked the people of Bambali by saying that the hospital is for them, that he did only his duty as a worthy son of the land. This hospital is obtained thanks to you and for you the population of Sedhiou”, said the Liverpool player.
Sadio Mané thus reiterates his desire to help the inhabitants of the village where he is from. Beyond this jewel in the field of health, the winner of the African gold ball in 2019 built the same year in Bambali a high school worth 152,892,100 FCFA.
