All the amazing things Sadio Mané has done for charity in his home country

He has paid for a hospital and a school to be built in his home village

Sadio Mane’s goals and tireless work have won the hearts of fans, but his work for charity has also won him plaudits.

 

 

 

 

 

Former Liverpool superstar Mane is now plying his trade at German club Bayern Munich, after a trophy-laden spell on Merseyside.

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

At the start of the pandemic in March 2020, another one of Sadio Mané’s charity donations took place – he gave £41,000 to the national committee fighting Covid in Senegal.

His agent said he had done it “spontaneously when he saw the evolution of the situation”.

Donated £250,000 for a new secondary school

In the spring of 2019, as Liverpool were in the final stages of their successful Champions League campaign, Mané made a £250,000 donation to fund a school in Bambali.

At a ceremony, Mané’s uncle read a speech from the player, which said: “Education is very important. This is what will enable you to have a good career.”

Gifted 300 Liverpool shirts to people in his home village

If there are any Everton fans in Bambali, they’re probably wondering if they picked the wrong side.

Mané donated 300 Liverpool shirts so people in his village could wear them during the 2018 Champions League final.

Liverpool lost to Real Madrid, but those with the shirts had cause to celebrate the following year, when Liverpool lifted the trophy.
