The 31-year-old is committed to improving the lives of people in the West African country
Midfielder Paris Saint-Germain’s Idrissa Gueye has joined a non-profit organization, For Hope Association, to supply food and cribs to a nursery in Senegal.
The former Everton and Aston Villa star was in the company of his husband, Pauline Gueye and volunteers when they visited the Kaolack nursery.
After their donation, Gueye and his team spoke to the people to know their needs for further help.
They also visited towns in Ngelou before the 31-year-old returned to Paris to join Mauricio Pochettino in preparation for the 2021-22 season.
“Many thanks to all the volunteers of our association, For Hope Association, who allowed us to perform the first operation with the children of the Kaolack Nursery,” Gueye wrote on Instagram.
It was an incredible moment of sharing, rich in emotions. After that we went to the villages of Ngelou where we talked to the residents, with the aim of making various adjustments. We will continue to do everything to make your daily life more enjoyable. Stay tuned. “
Gueye is not the only Senegal international to hit his West African country this summer with his resources.
Kalidou Koulibaly, center of Naples, celebrated his 30th birthday a few weeks ago and bought two ambulances and medical equipment for hospitals in Senegal.
The items, including portable, personal protective equipment and thousands of protective masks, were allegedly shipped from the port of Naples to Africa.
Liverpool star Sadio Mane is another player in Aliou Cisse’s national selection who has taken a step towards influencing lives during his holiday.
The 2019 African soccer player of the year donated around £ 500,000 to finance the construction of a hospital in Bambali – his hometown.
He also met with Senegalese President Macky Sall in June to seek the government’s contribution to provide medical staff for the medical facility.
The new hospital project will have maternity care, dental facilities and consulting rooms.
Two years ago, the 29-year-old contributed £ 250,000 to build a school in the same town.
