“Only healthy people have a chance to lift themselves from poverty – I know this myself from my homeland of Cameroon. That’s why I am campaigning for FAIRMED,” said the YB winger and striker of his commitment to the organisation.

The 24-year-old spent his childhood in Yaoundé, the capital of Cameroon, where he played for several years before moving to Coton Sport FC in the north of the country. In 2016, he moved to Europe to play for Altach in Austria before signing on for the current Swiss champions in 2017. A glance at his goal tally suggests that he is feeling at home in Bern.

“A genuine stroke of luck for FAIRMED”
And so it was not out of place that he chose to meet our Relationship Manager, Karina Rey, on the artificial turf of the Stade de Suisse stadium, and even personally opened the hallowed gates of the former Wankdorf stadium to our impressed colleague.

“Surrounded by more than 32,000 empty seats in the stadium, I met up with Nicolas for a chat that was really quite inspiring,” said Karina of the experience. Of course, she has only positive words for the football star: “Nicolas is extremely personable, friendly and obliging. It’s a genuine stroke of luck for FAIRMED”
