Cristiano Ronaldo to Build Children’s Hospital in Chile
Cristiano Ronaldo is continuing in his works of charity after announcing he’ll be financing the building of a children’s hospital in the Chile capital, Santiago.
Ronaldo, 32, will be teaming up with Italian billionaire, Alessandro Proto to complete the venture by 2020.
It is understood that the hospital in Santiago will be the first of many to be built across South America, Sun writes.
This was confirmed following an official statement from New York-based law firm, Brafman & Associates.
“Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo will build a paediatric hospital in Santiago Chile, in 2020.
“Cristiano, up to now the only player in the history to have won the The Best FIFA Award for the best player in the world, and Alessandro is very happy with this initiative.”
The Portugal captain was recently named the world’s highest paid footballer by Forbes, and is well known for his charitable side and giving something back to society.
He also does plenty of humanitarian work in his spare time following his role as a global ambassador for a number of charities, including Save the Children, Unicef and World Vision.
It’s been another memorable year for Ronaldo after he inspired Real Madrid to the Champions League and La Liga double in May.
He recently claimed a fifth ballon d’Or award, equalling great rival Lionel Messi, in addition to the Fifa best Award he received in October.
During the summer, the former Manchester United winger became a father to twins, Eva and Mateo, before his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez delivered his fourth child, Alana Martina.
Ronaldo and his Madrid team-mates return to la Liga action with a monster El Clasico clash against Barcelona this weekend after claiming the Club World Cup last week.
