Very involved in his country, Rafael Nadal launched a campaign to raise 11 million euros in favor of the Spanish Red Cross. The Majorcan, who has already supported the nursing staff who fight against the coronavirus, is supported in this initiative by the basketball player Pau Gasol. The aim is to help those most in need, to build field hospitals and to donate hospital supplies. He has published a video in which he is worried and particularly concerned about the situation.
“We are living in a difficult time. We are experiencing the impact of this pandemic which has changed our lives and in particular those who suffer directly from it., commented on the current world number 2. These are sad moments and the news is not very good. I spent a few days at home thinking about how I could help and make a contribution to this situation which is completely new for everyone. I spoke with my friend Pau (Gasol). It is time to launch this initiative and we hope that all the Spanish sportsmen will unite (…) The Spanish have never disappointed the sportsmen, you have always been there with us in good times and in bad times. The sportsmen that we are, thanks to your support, we cannot disappoint you. The time has come for us Spanish sportspeople to achieve our best victory.“
Spain has become the second country most affected by COVID-19 after Italy and the situation continues to deteriorate.
