Kalou brothers donate dialysis centre



Former Chelsea striker Salomon Kalou and his footballer sibling Bonaventure Kalou have donated a centre for dialysis to the Ivorian population, the authorities said on Wednesday.

Built in the country’s second largest city Bouake, the charity project cost the Kalous 300,000 million francs (R 5.3m, $600,000) and has been certified by the ministry of health.

The centre is equipped with 16 dialysis machines, 14 generators and more than 20 computers meant for doctors, nurses and administrators, the Kalou Brothers Foundation said.

The initiative comes at a time when there is a rise in kidney troubles across the West African nation, with available infrastructure deteriorating by the day.

The centre will be able to dialyses at least 10 people per day, according the personnel.
