Federer Donates to Families Affected by Coronavirus

Sports stars continued their campaigns in support of fighting the Coronavirus, which swept many countries of the world, and resulted in infections and deaths, and caused near-total paralysis of many activities, especially sports.

In this context, the Swiss tennis star Roger Federer and his wife, Mirka Vavrinec, announced the donation of one million Swiss francs to “the poorest families” in his country, which suffers from the repercussions of the Corona pandemic, during a post on their social networks.

“These are tough times for everyone and nobody should be left alone,” Mirka said. “Me and husband have decided to donate 1 million Swiss francs to the poorest families in Switzerland. Our contribution is just the beginning. We hope others join to support more needy families. Together we can overcome this crisis.” Be healthy! ”

World number four Federer is continuing the recovery phase of an operation on his right knee on February 20, and will keep him out of action for at least four months, while tennis is currently suspended until June 7.

These are challenging times for everyone and nobody should be left behind. Mirka and I have personally decided to donate one million Swiss Francs for the most vulnerable families in Switzerland. Our contribution is just a start. We hope that others might join in supporting more families in need. Together we can overcome this crisis! Stay healthy! Dies sind herausfordernde Zeiten für uns alle und niemand sollte zurückgelassen werden. Mirka und ich haben beschlossen, persönlich eine Million Schweizer Franken für die am stärksten gefährdeten Familien in der Schweiz zu spenden. Unser Beitrag ist nur ein Anfang. Wir hoffen, dass sich andere anschließen, um noch mehr bedürftige Familien zu unterstützen. Gemeinsam können wir diese Krise überwinden! Bleibt gesund! Nous vivons une période difficile pour nous tous et personne ne doit être laissé pour compte. Mirka et moi avons décidé de personnellement faire don d'un million de francs suisses aux familles les plus défavorisées en Suisse. Notre contribution n'est qu'un début. Nous espérons que d'autres se joindront à nous pour aider encore plus de familles dans le besoin. Ensemble, nous pouvons surmonter cette crise! Restez en bonne santé!
