Lisbon, Dec 24: Portuguese football star Cristiano Roldo, a Save the Children ambassador, said Syrian children affected by the war were “real heroes” and called for them not to lose hope. “Hello, this is for children of Syria. We know that you have been suffering a lot. I am a very famous player, but you are the true heroes, don’t lose your hope,” he said in a video message posted on social media network Twitter on Friday, reports Xinhua.

“The world is with you, we care about you. I am with you,” he added.

Save the Children said his “generous dotion” would help families buy clothes, food and medical care.

Tens of thousands of people have been killed and hundreds of thousands displaced since 2012. IANS
