EX-MANCHESTER UNITED star Cristiano Ronaldo has sent a plane fully loaded with care items to victims of the devastating earthquake in Syria and Turkey.
More than 47,000 people have died and five million have been left homeless as ten cities were hit by the worst disaster in 100 years.
Ronaldo, 38, has already helped raise money for the earthquake victims through his former Juventus team-mate, Merih Demiral.
The Turkey international auctioned off a signed Ronaldo Juve jersey to help raise funds.
But the five-time Ballon d'Or and Champions League winner has stepped up his support, sending a plane load of supplies to victims.
The Portugal legend has paid for tents, food packages, pillows and blankets, beds, baby food and milk and medical supplies to help aid the humanitarian effort.
