Ivorian football great Didier Drogba has offered his hospital in his native Côte d’Ivoire to serve as a Coronavirus treatment facility.
Drogba opened the doors of the Abidjan based hospital in 2016. He named it after after former Ivorian forward Laurent Pokou.
The hospital is part of Drogba’s Foundation. The Didier Drogba Foundation was launched by the former Marseille and Chelsea forward to provide support in education and health across the continent by providing financial and material support in both sectors of interest.
Vincent Toh Bi Irie, the head of the regional hospital in Abidjan has saluted Drogba’s gesture and acknowledges that it will go a long way to help them in their efforts to fight against the spread of the dreaded Covid-19.
“We thank Drogba for his gift considered as an act of patriotism,” Vincent said.
Côte d’Ivoire has recorded a total of 574 Coronavirus cases with five deaths, since the first case was recorded in the west African country.
