The hospital will have an A&E department, maternity care, dental facilities and consulting rooms.
Mane previously told how his father died due to a lack of medical facilities in the remote West African town.
Mane has previously spoken about the death of his father around the release of a documentary, Made in Senegal, about his life. “He’d had a stomach ache, but because there was no hospital, we tried traditional medicine,” said Mane.
The 29-year-old footballer has already previously donated £250,000 to build a school in Bambali.
