Bertrand Traore is not only a player who has made a name for himself on the pitch. The Aston Villa striker has also made a name for himself off the pitch, notably by showing great generosity. Indeed, the Stallion donated medical equipment to an association of disabled people in the city of Bobo-Dioulasso (economic capital of Burkina Faso) on Saturday 24 July.
This donation was organized in partnership with the association Orthopédie Sans Frontière (OSF) and the Bertrand Traoré Foundation. After the handover, the Stallions striker had a lot to say to the authorities and the people of the foundation.
"Thank you to the health authorities of the city of Bobo and especially to those in charge of the CSPS of Colsama for their availability and their welcome. Finally, thank you to all the foundation's staff for their diligence," said the player.
This act is not a first for Bertrand Traore. The striker has had, through his foundation, to support many poor people. And recently, Sport Drome, a Burkinabe daily, mentioned the Aston Villa player's desire to build a hospital in his native village of Bobo-Dioulasso.
