Lionel Messi has donated 500 thousand euro to an Argentine hospital to help them buy supplies and medical equipment, a little over a month after he had donated 1 million to the cause.

The supplies will go to Hospital Garrahan in Buenos Aires, Argentina’s capital.

The hospital’s associated charity, Fundación Garrahan, publicly thanked the Barcelona star for his gesture.

Medical professionals posed alongside equipment in a video that read “Gracias Messi.”
