He’s one of the greatest players to come from Senegal, and he’s given his country not only trophies – scoring the winning penalty in the final of the 2022 African Cup of Nations – but a huge amount of donations for important projects.
This summer he was spotted playing football with friends on a muddy pitch in Bambali, his home village. It was from here Mane forged a football career, running away at the age of 15 to follow his dream.
Since then, as his star has risen, he’s given back phenomenally.
This is what Sadio Mane has done for charity.
Donated £500,000 for a hospital to be built in his home village of Bambali
Mané’s father died when he was a child, and the lack of health services in his home region has become a big cause in the footballer’s life.
“I remember my sister was also born at home because there is no hospital in our village. It was a really, really sad situation for everyone. I wanted to build one to give people hope,” told the Guardian in 2020.
The hospital, which includes a maternity care department, was inaugurated by the footballer in June 2021.
Donated £41,000 to the Senegal government when the pandemic hit
