Roger Federer and wife donate 1M Swiss franc for the COVID-19 vulnerable

by Duke Magazine

 Roger Federer and his wife Mirka have donated 1m Swiss francs (£857,000) “for the most vulnerable families in Switzerland” and have called on others to add their support. 

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Switzerland has imposed a ban on all private and public events and has closed all non-essential businesses until at least 19 April. “These are challenging times for everyone and nobody should be left behind,” Federer, 38, wrote on Instagram. “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!” The 20-time Grand Slam champion is the latest in a string of sports stars to pledge money to support those affected by the virus.
