The sale raised money will be provide to the needy, who are impacted by the quarantine standards in deprived areas or on the outskirts of Buenos Aires.
“We’re going to get through it,” Maradona wrote on the jersey, a replica of the one he wore when he led his country to victory in the 1986 World Cup.
Firstly, Jersey was bidden at auction, but now is staking to those who helped and donate in this initiative that has amassed hygiene products, masks and food around 100 kilograms(220 pounds) for charity.
Diego can’t even imagine what he has done for us, it’s priceless. I’ll be grateful to him until the day I die,” said local resident Marta Gutierrez.
