The ex-Chelsea and Everton star after taking delivery of the consignment presented them to Cameroon's public health ministry last week as reported by SunSport.

He however shared the information on his official Instagram page with the caption that says:

"Donating 10 ambulances to the Ministry of Health in Cameroon. Was such an honour to be able to do this for my country, so more people can be helped in emergency situations."

The retired football star was said to have donated almost £1 million to build a children's wing at the Laquintinie hospital in his home town Douala four years ago.

SunSport further revealed that the Eto'o charity foundation also gave face masks and food supplies last year.

The 40-year-old moved to Stamford Bridge from Anzhi Makhachkala in 2013 and scored a number of goals in 35 appearances for the Blues but ended his boot in 2019 after spending just one season with Qatar SC.
