Cristiano Ronaldo donates EUR 100,000 to aid Afghan landmine victims

cr7Shortly before cruising in on a wave of phase to equalise for Real Madrid against Manchester United last night, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) announced that Cristiano Ronaldo is donating €100,000 on behalf of UEFA to help rehabilitate Afghans who have lost limbs, mostly as a result of landmines.

This is the second time that the Real Madrid and Portugal forward – who has featured a record seven times in the uefa.com user’s poll for Team of the Year – has contributed to the ICRC’s network of seven orthopedic centers in Afghanistan, it said.

“For me it’s a great honor to be able to help others, and it makes me extremely happy to do so,” said Ronaldo.

On behalf of UEFA, he donated a similar amount in 2008 to the ICRC, which has helped more than 90,000 mine victims and other disabled people in the war-torn country since 1988.
