Actor Matthew McConaughey and his wife Camila Alves have delivered 110,000 medical masks to rural hospitals in the state of Texas. The medical team was sponsored by the Lincoln Auto Company, of which McConaughey is a spokesperson.
The Oscar-winning actor made the announcement through a Facebook statement, sharing a photo in a truck full of boxes with the logo of Lincoln’s partner company, Ford, “Me and Camila Alves will hit the road to take them to hospitals through Texas ”.
In recent weeks, a shortage of facemasks and medical equipment has been reported in the United States, prompting the initiative by the company and McConaughey himself.
It is not the first time that McConaughey has volunteered during the coronavirus pandemic. Last month the actor played Virtual Bingo with older adults who were confined.
