Cristiano Ronaldo has always been one to give back to the community no matter how much hate he receives. There have been multiple reports in the past about how Ronaldo has auctioned off individual trophies to help children in need. This has deservedly earned the Portuguese captain millions of fans around the world.
The former Manchester United man has won hearts once again, after making a massive contribution to the victims in Turkey. For some context, the country had to experience a strong earthquake near the Syrian border. Since then, Turkish and Syrian people have been facing multiple earthquakes, as the death toll has hit 50,000 as multiple sources claim.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s contribution to Turkey & Syria earthquake victims sparks huge debate
As reported by the Daily Mail, the Al-Nassr striker recently sent a plane, containing food, medical supplies, milk, pillows, and other things that the victims needed. This has certainly impressed fans on social media, who have applauded the soccer star’s effort to help people in need. However, at the same time, fans have also managed to point out something interesting.

A fan tweeted, “Messi gave $3m. Meanwhile these items don’t even reach $1.5m stingy man.” According to Euro Weekly News, PSG superstar Lionel Messi has helped the victims by donating €3.5 million ($3.7 million). It looks like another comparison between Ronaldo and Messi has made its way, as it does often in soccer.
Messi gave $3m . Meanwhile, these items don’t even reach $1.5m stingy man .

While Twitter user has branded Ronaldo as “stingy,” some have taken a dig at the World Cup winner as well. Users have pointed out that Messi has not helped the earthquake victims but it shows how his massive contribution has gone under the radar.
Meanwhile messi only made a post because he is given money by unicef. Messi is the most fake humble guy of all time.
