Rabat – The Portuguese football star, Cristiano Ronaldo, who has long been concerned with the situation of the Palestinian people, has donated $1.5 million to help prepare Iftar for Palestinian fasters.
According to ONWADAN’S CHARITY FOUNDATION, the Portuguese star has chosen to give the money to help feed those in Gaza who are suffering under an Israeli air, sea, and land blockade.
Ronaldo is known for being generous with the neediest people, especially victims of political wars in Syria and Palestine.
In November 2012, Ronaldo sold his Golden Boot at an auction to raise funds which he later donated to Palestinian children.
In March 2013, at the end of the game between Portugal and Israel in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers, Ronaldo refused to exchange shirts with an Israeli player. He later explained that he could not wear a shirt bearing the Israeli flag.
