Barcelona forward Lionel Messi has made a €500,000 donation to help the fight against coronavirus in Argentina. 

The six-time Ballon d’Or winner pledged to give a total of around €1 million to assist in the battle with Covid-19 in March, with around half of that going to Barcelona’s Hospital Clinic and the rest dedicated to medical facilities in his homeland.

It has now been confirmed that the captain of the Argentina national team has donated €500,000 to the Fundación Garrahan for their campaign “Juntos por la salud argentina” (Together for Argentine health).

“We are very grateful for this recognition of our work, which will allow us to continue with our commitment to public health in Argentina,” said Dr. Silvia Kassab, executive director of the ​Fundación Garrahan.
