Cameroon’s Women’s national team and AS Nancy Lorianne Feminino defender Christine Patience Mani and her club colleagues were involved in a humanitarian gesture to fight against Leukodystrophies over the weekend.

Mani and her mates suffered their first defeat away to Le Havre this weekend and after the game they decided to visit an institution.

Leukodystrophies are a group of rare, progressive, metabolic, genetic diseases that affect the brain, spinal cord and often the peripheral nerves. Each type of leukodystrophy is caused by a specific gene abnormality that leads to abnormal development or destruction of the white matter (myelin sheath) of the brain.

Mani and the entire playing and technical were visibly satisfied by the gesture.

It gives me joy to be involved in such an action,this campaign is very important and we need to continue this combat against this desease” .

34-year-old Mani has been an emblem in Cameroon football over the Years. She has appeared at seven AWCON tournaments, 2 World Cup and an Olympic Tournament.

She has featured for multiple clubs in France over the years.
