The Real Madrid and Portugal star’s “generous donation” will fund food, clothing and medical care for families in Aleppo and across Syria, Save the Children said Friday.

“This is for the children of Syria,”

Ronaldo said in a video message posted to his social media accounts Friday.

“We know that you have been suffering a lot. I am a very famous player, but you are the true heroes. Don’t lose your hope. The world is with you. We care about you. I am with you.”

Aleppo has witnessed four years of brutal fighting between rebels and government forces until Thursday when opposition fighters left, putting the Bashar al-Asad’s oppressive regime in full control for the first time since 2012. Save the Children director Nick Finney said in a statement:

“Cristiano Ronaldo’s generous donation will help us to support children from Aleppo and across Syria, who have suffered things children should never have to live through,”

“We are tremendously grateful for his life-changing support.

And hope is something that Syria’s children need now more than ever.”
