Football news: Mohamed Salah’s donation to church affected by fire in Egypt
Mohamed Salah has donated three million Egyptian dollars ($156,965) as a donation to rebuild a church that was destroyed by a fire, at Giza in Egypt. The fire at the Coptic Orthodox church took away the lives of 41 people. As per the report, the fire was started by an electrical fault in an air conditioning unit, which blocked an exit and caused a stampede with 18 children reported being among the dead.

As per the report Mohamed Salah also bought gym equipment, paid for couples to get married and purchased youth football trophies in Nagrig in addition to a donation of £26,612 to the Association of Veteran Egyptian Players to help former footballers who are struggling after retirement.
