Reports has it that Liverpool star Sadio Mane has revealed he is building a hospital in his home country of Senegal which will open in six months time. Sadio Mane has often showed his kind side away from the football pitch as he is involved in a number of philanthropic initiatives with regards to building schools in his hometown of Senegal.
Sadio Mane is not stopping just yet as he is currently helping address the healthcare crisis in his country by building a hospital. Speaking in his upcoming documentary highlighted by The Guardian, the 27-year-old revealed the death of his father when he was aged just seven inspired him to undertake the project.
“Before he passed away, he had this kind of sickness for weeks. We brought him some traditional medicine and it kept him calm for three or four months. The sickness came back but this time the medicine didn’t work and because there was no hospital in Bambali they had to take him to the next village,” Mané tells the Guardian.
“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,” he added.
