Liverpool star Mane donates $50k to fight Covid-19 in Senegal - Sports Leo

Liverpool star Sadio Mane has made a donation of 42 000 pounds (R849 709) in the fight against Covid-19 in his home country of Senegal.

The 27-year-old sent a message to Senegalese people stressing personal hygiene by saying: “Disinfect your hands as much as possible, clean your hands for at least 30 seconds.”

Mane is not currently in action with the English Premier League suspended due to the spread of the coronavirus.

Mane’s agent told BBC Afrique that the player made the donation “spontaneously when he saw the evolution of the situation.”

The player has been known for his charitable deeds in the past, though he prefers to keep them under wraps, as in 2018 he was responsible for building a school in his hometown of Banbali.

According to NsemWoha.com Mane has:

Spent $300 000 (R4.3m) on the construction of a high school in Banbali, funded a stadium and a hospital construction project, gave each family in his village 50 000 West African Francs (R1230) and sent 300 Liverpool jerseys to young soccer players in his community.
