Charity Ball 2012
The Didier Drogba Foundation will host its third Charity Ball on March, 10th 2012 in London. "The Foundation have received a tremendous support so far but we still have a lot of work to do", said Didier. The top priority is still to build a hospital in Abidjan.
Created in 2007, the Didier Drogba Foundation’s goal is to provide financial and material support in health and education to the African people. The main objective, to build a hospital in Abidjan, is soon to be realized. "The troubles in Ivory Coast have affected the population in one way or another, said Didier when discussing the building progress. It is important that we bring health care to those in need. The Foundation have received a tremendous support so far but we still have a lot of work to do. I hope you will be able to join me that evening to help me accomplish this mission."
The third Didier Drogba Foundation’s Charity Ball will be held on March, 10th 2012 at the Dorchester Hotel, Park Lane, in London. The British press raved about this initiative, with The Sun speaking of "a man who has taken on the responsibility of rebuilding his entire country", while The Telegraph evokes "the centre-forward who is more powerful than the president" and emphasizes the "humility" of the captain of the Elephants, who returns as often as possible in his homeland. The BBC also made a special report in Ivory Coast, with an exclusive focus on the Foundation. Didier explains that "there is more to life than football".
