Mohamed Salah helps rebuild Church in Egypt

Liverpool player, Mohamed Salah may be known at Anfield as the Egyptian King, outside Anfield, he shows he is exactly that.

The winger is reported to have donated a sum of $155,000 to help rebuild a church in Giza, Egypt after a fire outbreak had consumed and killed 41 people on Sunday.

A reported death of 41 people was recorded in the fire while dozens were left injured when the fire broke out at the Coptic church near Cairo.

The tragedy occurred on the 14th of August at about 9 a.m. when about 5,000 worshippers convened at the Abu Sifin church for the Sunday Mass.

Social media channels in Egypt were immediately filled with messages of gratitude to the beloved footballer for his kind donation.

The donation was confirmed by prominent Egyptian sports reporter Ibrahim Abdel Gawad, who joined many others in appreciating Mohammed Salah in a Facebook post.

The cause of the fire outbreak at the church came as a result of an electrical fault from an air conditioning unit.

The flames went on to block an exit leading to a stampede that caused a number of casualties including 18 children.

Salah is very much known for his generous nature and exemplary lifestyle and in 2019 he gave out £3m to the National Cancer Institute in Cairo after a terrorist attack left 20 casualties.

In 2019, he was also seen in Liverpool paying fuel bills for some fans during the Covid-19 pandemic.
