Cameroon legend Samuel Eto’o has joined a host of African footballers to make donations to the vulnerable households in his country.

The disease has caused hardship in the West African country and in helping people survive, the 39-year-old has given out relief package to residents in Douala.

Several food items, soaps, sanitisers, and protective equipment were donated in Cameroon’s economic capital.

People in Buea, Yaounde, and Baffoussam will also benefit from this largesse in the coming days.

Eto’o took to Instagram to share pictures of his team distributing the relief materials.

“In an Instagram post captained “I will give my life to continue to serve you,” he posted.

Through his foundation with support from Betoo, Kadji Group and Utopia, the four-time African Player of the Year had promised to help distribute supplies to 100,000 people in the battle against the pandemic.

Apart from the relief materials, an extra 50,000 protective face masks will also be given explicitly for taxi drivers in the Central African Nation.

“The Samuel Eto’o Foundation wishes to be precise that this action aims to further support to Cameroonian citizens from a health perspective than food. The primary objective is to slow the progress of the pandemic,” read a part of Eto’o foundation’s statement.

“Obeying the main recommendations of the WHO, our actions with the support of the Kadji Group and Twist  Night Club, will be articulated on one hand around a mass and field awareness in favour of the “regular handwashing with soap and water” and on the other hand with distribution of handwashing kits which include potable water, bleach, soap, as well as support with foodstuffs such as rice, salt, for the benefit of at least fifty thousand households of the poorest strata of the Cameroonian population of Buea, Douala, Yaounde, and Baffoussam.”
