Ex-Man Utd star Cristiano Ronaldo sends incredible package to Turkey and Syria earthquake victims

EX-MANCHESTER UNITED star Cristiano Ronaldo has sent a plane fully loaded with care items to victims of the devastating earthquake in Syria and Turkey.

More than 47,000 people have died and five million have been left homeless as ten cities were hit by the worst disaster in 100 years.

Ronaldo, 38, has already helped raise money for the earthquake victims through his former Juventus team-mate, Merih Demiral.

The Turkey international auctioned off a signed Ronaldo Juve jersey to help raise funds.

But the five-time Ballon d’Or and Champions League winner has stepped up his support, sending a plane load of supplies to victims.

The Portugal legend has paid for tents, food packages, pillows and blankets, beds, baby food and milk and medical supplies to help aid the humanitarian effort.

It’s not the first time Ronaldo has been generous.

Ronaldo once paid £69,000 to pay for child’s brain surgery.

He also donated £137,000 to help fund a cancer centre in his native Portugal.

Ronaldo also donated £1million to Portuguese hospitals during the height of the coronavirus pandemic.

After leaving Man Utd late last year, Ronaldo has settled well into life in Saudi Arabia.

He now plays for Al-Nassr, who sit top of the league, largely thanks to Ronaldo’s eight goals.
