Ivory Coast International Didier Drogba hosted friends and teammates at his annual Didier Drogba Foundation Charity Ball in London. This year’s event took place at the glamorous Dorchester Hotel in London.
Musician Estelle and Fashion Designer Whitney Port alongside football stars Frank Lampard, John Terry, Bacary Sagna, Ashley Cole and Shaun Wright-Phillips helped raise funds for Drogba’s charity project – a hospital/health centre currently being built in the Attecoube district of Abidjan, a poor and densely populated neighbourhood with no modern health facilities.
His teammates and football friends donated jerseys and other items which were auctioned off at the event. Drogba aims to raise £3 million to complete the hospital which will provide free healthcare services to less privileged people in Abidjan.
Great to see Drogba consistently working to improve the lives of people in his country! We hope to see this project completed soon.
