Barcelona captain Lionel Messi has committed himself to fight against the Corona Virus Pandemic.
The FIFA World best footballer has donated One Million Euros towards health care against the pandemic.
Half of the donation would go to Clinic Barcelona and other half for hospitals in Argentina.
“Leo Messi makes a donation for the fight against # Covid19 at the # CLÍNIC . Thank you very much Leo, for your commitment and your support,” the Hospital Clínic de Barcelona reported on Twitter.
The Argentine captain has involved himself heavily in the education of the public to stop the spread of the virus.
“These are complicated days for everyone. We live worried about what is happening and we want to help putting ourselves in the place of those who are having the worst of it, either because it directly affected them or their family and friends, or because they are working in front line to combat it in hospitals and health centers.
I want to send a lot of strength to all of them “the Barça captain on his official Instagram page.
