Ronaldinho Is Coming To Lebanon This Week

FC Barcelona

Brazilian former professional footballer, Ronaldo de Assis Moreira, commonly known as Ronaldinho, has announced that he will be dropping down in Beirut this week.

In February 2017, the Brazilian athlete was spotted partying in Beirut. Later during the same year, he met with Lebanese President Michel Aoun.

This time, his visit will be different.

It will be a visit of solidarity with the Lebanese people who are days away from the one-year painful commemoration of the Beirut Explosion.

Ronaldinho will arrive on July 28th. Upon landing, he will reportedly visit the Beirut Fire Brigade in Karantina, the Beirut Port where he will lay a wreath in honor of the victims, and visit the Civil Defense headquarters in Beirut.

During his visit, he will also meet with different associations that helped with relief efforts and rebuilding the city after the blast.
