Brazilian players from Premier League clubs continue to take part helping people from their home country during the Coronavirus crisis.
On Wednesday night, it was time for Manchester City star Gabriel Jesus to donate three tonnes of food to residents of favelas in Brazil.
The donation was made in a live show from Brazilian singer Belo on Youtube. Several local artists have been producing concerts in their homes to gather food and hygiene products for poor people.
Gabriel Jesus called Belo to ask for one of his songs, ‘Intriga da Oposição’, and announced his donation. He even stayed on the line to sing a little.
This isn’t the first time Gabriel Jesus has got involved in charity actions during the Coronavirus crisis. Two weeks ago, he had already donated 400 food baskets to the neighbourhood of Jardim Peri, where he grew up.
Also this week, the Brazilian FA announced the use of R$5m (£740k) to help those in need. Half of that money was donated by national team players, with Gabriel Jesus included, and the other half was given by the federation. They’re expecting to help 32,000 families with that money.
