THE STORY:

The Didier Drogba Foundation was created in 2007 to provide financial and material support in the field of health and education to those in need in Africa.

Didier reverse its foundation all its commercial and advertising revenue such as Nike, Samsung and Pepsi.

The Foundation has supported projects in Africa, such as:
- The Red Cross in Abidjan
- The institution Page White
- Orphanages in Ivory Coast

The idea is to build a hospital in 2009 when during a qualifying match for the World Cup, a wall collapsed in the national stadium making 19 dead and 133 wounded. Didier visited the wounded in hospital and was shocked by the conditions of care.

The initial goal was to build a hospital in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, but it was decided that five clinics across the country would allow more people to receive help in different areas.

The construction work of the first Clinque Abidjan began earlier this year.

The Foundation has organized three charity galas, in 2009, 2010 and 2012, which combined, have helped raise almost 1 million pound sterling for the largest project to date, the construction of the clinic in Abidjan.

In 2007, Didier was appointed Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations and in May 2010, named by Time Magazine's 100 most influential people in the world for his work in Africa.

Didier in 2011 was named one of the 11 members of the Dialogue, Truth and Reconciliation in place to help heal the wounds left by the post-election crisis in Côte d'Ivoire.

In 2011 Didier was also honored with "Beyond Sport's Humanitarian in Sports Award" for his work with Didier Drogba Foundation and the United Nations Development Programme.
