Former Manchester United world football star Cristiano Ronaldo has sent an entire plane full of supplies and care items to survivors of the devastating earthquakes in Syria and Turkey.
The Al-Nassr player decided to pay for an entire bulk of tents, food packages, pillows, blankets, beds, baby food, milk and other medical supplies and send them on a one-way trip to be distributed in the earthquake sites.
This comes after footage emerged last week of the famous player meeting a young Syrian boy who opened up about wishing to meet the renowned footballer.
The act of kindness is hoped to inspire others with similar levels of wealth to donate to the earthquake stricken areas, with this not being the first time Ronaldo has done so.
Meanwhile, the most recent figures indicate that the death toll of the catastrophes has risen to around 50,000, with 44,218 dying in Turkey alone.
Ronaldo has held ambassadorial roles for Save the Children, UNICEF and World Vision, having donated $83,000 to pay for child’s brain surgery, $165,000 to help fund a cancer centre in Portugal, another £1 million to Portuguese hospitals during the COVID-19 pandemic, and various other instances of humanitarian aid.
