Newcastle star Miguel Almiron has shown the world what a good guy he is in the midst of the coronavirus crisis – helping out those in need back in his homeland.
Almiron, who has been keeping up his fitness levels at home like the rest of the Newcastle squad, has dipped his hand in his pocket to donate 400 litres of hand sanitiser in his home country of Paraguay.
The 400 litres will be supplied to hospitals throughout the country to help win the battle against the disease, with Almiron’s donation being in response to the Government declaring a shortage of the product – announcing a State of Sanitary Emergency nationwide.
Paraguay – like the majority of the world – are in a state of national emergency, with all non-essential movement prohibited until March 28.
Acts like this show the positive side of football, and how a person of wealth can make a difference especially in a time of need.
Almiron always gives off a positive impression regardless of him doing this, with this gesture only adding to the sentiment that he is an all-round genuine guy.
After we’ve seen how selfish and care-free some can be in the midst of such a crisis (Mike Ashley and that shameless Wetherspoons owner!), it’s nice to see one of our own restore some faith in humanity during these tough times.
Well done Miggy!
