Didier-DrogbaThe former Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has said he will launch legal action against the Daily Mail after it published an article claiming £1.7m donated to his charity had not reached those they were intended for.

A Mail report on the Didier Drogba Foundation claims only1 per cent (£14,115) of donations made by high-profile people, royals and business people in the UK over five years had gone to good causes. It also claims £439,321 was spent on fundraising parties while the rest of the funds were “languishing” in bank accounts.

The foundation raises money for the development of a hospital, clinics and educating children in the Ivory Coast, in West Africa. Celebrity backers of the foundation include Princess Beatrice, David Beckham, Bono, Frank Lampard and Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich.

The Mail claims that out of up to five clinics scheduled to be built, only one has been constructed and has no staff or medical equipment. The foundation is now under investigation by the Charity Commission. The commision says it has “serious regulatory concerns about a number of compliance issues raised” and has contacted the charity seeking an urgent response.
