Pep Guardiola donates

Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola has donated €1m (£918,000) to help fight coronavirus in Spain.

The former Barcelona manager is currently with his family at his home in the city.

He made his donation to the Medical College of Barcelona and the Angel Soler Daniel Foundation.

Spain is one of the worst-hit countries in Europe with more than 2,696 people dead and nearly 40,000 infected.

The donation will be used in buying medical equipment and protective material for hospital staff in Catalonia.

The Foundation said in a statement;

“Pep Guardiola has made a donation of one million euros to the Fundacio Angel Soler Daniel for the acquisition and supply of health equipment to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic,”

“The fundraising campaign led by the Official College of Doctors of Barcelona and managed through the Foundation, is aimed at obtaining cash donations from doctors who are members of the college and the general population to buy health equipment which is currently lacking in hospitals in Catalonia.

“It will also help to finance the alternative 3D production of respirator masks and other protective items for health workers.”
