Sadio Mane Commissions €500,000 Hospital He Built In His Hometown

Liverpool forward, Sadio Mane has commissioned an ultra-modern hospital in his hometown, Bambali in Senegal.

The newly built hospital is believed to have cost around €530,000.

Mane met Senegal president Macky Sall last week to officially gift the facility to the state.

The hospital will have an A&E department, maternity care, dental facilities and consulting rooms.

Mane previously told how his father died due to a lack of medical facilities in the remote West African town.

The reason for constructing this building is deeply moving. In 1999, when Sadio was only seven years old, his father got sick. He succumbed to his illness because there wasn’t a hospital in the village where the Manés lived.

Mane has previously spoken about the death of his father around the release of a documentary, Made in Senegal, about his life.

He’d had a stomach ache, but because there was no hospital, we tried traditional medicine,” said Mane.

The 29-year-old footballer has already previously donated £250,000 to build a school in Bambali.
