CAF President salutes health workers on World Health Day


I bring you all greetings from the Confederation of African Football, during these trying times the world is experiencing.

Let us not drop our guard in the fight against the deadly Coronavirus (COVID-19), which has shaken every foundation of the world.

In this fight, like in every match, the best team has been the Health Workers. The sacrifices you continue to make and the support offered to the patients to even risking your lives have been legendary.

On the occasion of World Health Day, I salute all health workers in Africa and the rest of the world for the gallant efforts and persistence during this difficult period of our lives.

You are the real heroes of this important match of our lives.

You are not alone. Our thoughts and prayers are with you for your health and safety.
