Péter Gulácsi, goalkeeper of Bundesliga side RB Leipzig and the Hungarian national team, donated HUF 25 million (EUR 69,000) and a kit for Zsombor, a child suffering from spinal muscular atrophy (SMA).
Zsombor’s parents shared the story on Facebook thanking the talented goalkeeper and his wife Diána Gulácsi-Vígh, for the donation.

The medication needed for Zsombor’s treatment, called Zolgensma, is one of the most expensive drugs in the world, costing as much as 730 million forints (EUR 2 million). The parents’ public donation campaign has so far collected a little more than third of this amount (HUF 256 million).
Gulácsi regularly donates in Hungary. In 2018, he announced that each year he gives to charity the entire amount of the premium he gets for his appearances on the national team. Back in March, amid the first wave of the coronavirus outbreak, he also donated HUF 5 million to the Szent László Hospital’s Infectiology and Intensive Care Departments.
