Toby Alderweireld to donate tablets to hospitals and nursing homes
With the coronavirus pandemic isolating and separating large numbers in the society, Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld has decided to ease their suffering by helping them stay in touch with family and friends.
According to the Independent, the 31-year-old Belgian is planning to purchase dozens of electronic devices to ensure that the ill do not feel alone during the coronavirus pandemic.
Alderweireld plans to supply these tablets to hospitals and nursing homes so people can have a video chat with their loved ones and friends to get through this troubled period.
“I’m trying to get those tablets to the places where they can help,” he said in a video on Twitter. (h/t Independent)
Whoever can help, please help! Together, we can come out of this difficult time stronger than ever. Stay safe everyone ❤️ pic.twitter.com/MOCNNVLMWR

The veteran defender took to Twitter to announce his gesture. He also expressed his hope that people are following the government’s guidelines to help prevent the spread of the virus.
An under-reported issue!
He touched upon the loneliness that self-isolation can have on people and brought attention to the perils of those who have to stay away from friends and family.
“The virus creates many needs, especially the lack of personal contact. The people who are sick can’t see their friends and family.” (h/t Independent)
Alderweireld’s gesture will come as a great relief to people missing their near and dear ones and could make their isolation more bearable. More so, it will ensure that people stay calm as they can stay in touch with their loved ones.
The Belgian will have had the first-hand experience of having watched Lucas Moura’s worries about his family in Brazil. The winger opened up on not being able to see his parents back home and admitted that he thinks of them all the time. (h/t Daily Star)
It is the same for many others who now stand to gain from Alderweireld’s gesture.
