News of the chaos in Palestine has captured the world’s attention. Recently, The Palestinians again received attacks from Isreal that forced the death toll, including children and women.
This situation then led many parties to call for a vote on the existence of peace. Similarly, muslim footballers who since last weekend have been eagerly asking for prayers for the Palestinian community.
But it is not only Muslim footballers who pay attention to Palestine. One of the world’s non-Muslim footballers, Cristiano Ronaldo, is also concerned. Even at one time he once auctioned off European golden shoes to help the future of children in Palestine.
According to The Sun report reported on Wednesday (12/5/2021), Cristiano Ronaldo once auctioned off the European golden boot he got in 2011.
At that time, he won the trophy in 2010-2011 with a collection of 40 goals.
However, Cristiano Ronaldo does not want to keep his pride alone. Therefore, the Juventus officials chose to auction the prestigious trophy to help children in Palestine.
At the auction CR7 managed to make money 1.2 million pounds or approximately Rp24.1 billion. The total money was then dedicated to the Palestinian community by building schools in Gaza City.
For information, the area is still under a land, air and sea blockade of the Israeli army since June 2007.

In 2013, Cristiano Ronaldo won the Ballon dOr trophy after defeating two top footballers, Franck Ribery and Lionel Messi. Even when Nepal was hit by a devastating earthquake in April 2015, Cristiano Ronaldo once donated a lot of money.
Through the Save The Children foundation, CR7 donated 5 million pounds (Rp96.5 billion). Reportedly, this is the biggest donation Cristiano Ronaldo has ever made
