Cameroon: Samuel Eto’o builds paediatric centre in Douala

Football legend, Samuel Eto’o Fils has constructed a pediatric centre in Douala worth CFA 700 million.

The centre dubbed “Pavillon Samuel Eto’o” is constructed at Hopital Laquintinie, a referential hospital in Douala.

The initiative, which will reduce the rate of infant mortality as well as childbirth related complications for women, is an act of generosity from the Samuel Eto’o Foundation.

The centre will improve reception and treatment of children, and provides more technical facilities for the prestigious hospital.

Speaking during the inaugural ceremony on Monday, Samuel Eto’o disclosed his motivation. “It is important for us to make such contributions so that our future mothers have a place where they can receive medical care,” he revealed.

The minister of Public Health expressed gratitude for the legendary act. “We are saying thank you. It is a very vital move,” Mama Fouda said.

Samuel Eto’o was honoured as a distinguished citizen during the occasion.

Eto’o remains one of the greatest footballers in Africa and Cameroon, with four African Footballer of the Year Awards( with Yaya Toure of Ivory Coast as well), three La Liga titles, two African Cup of Nations, and much more. He has more African goals than any other African player.
