Mohamed Salah Donated $156,634 to help rebuild a church in Giza, Egypt where a fire killed 41 people on Sunday.

Liverpool star Mohamed Salah has reportedly donated a large amount of his own money to help rebuild a church destroyed by a deadly fire in his native Egypt.

At least 41 people died in Giza, which is across the Nile from the capital Cairo, after a fire broke out on the weekend.

The tragedy struck as an estimated 1,000 Coptic Christian worshippers gathered for Mass at the Abu Sifin church on Sunday. Also Read, Johnny Depp will Direct His First Movie in 25 Years

The fire, which officials believed was started by an electrical fault in an air conditioning unit, blocked an exit and caused a stampede.

CNN reported that at least 18 children were among the dead.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi offered his “sincere condolences to the families of the innocent victims that have passed on to be with their Lord in one of his houses of worship”.

He ordered the armed forces to rebuild the church– a process that will now be aided by Salah. Also Read, This Actor Of Ghum Hain Kisikey Pyaar Meiin Bids Adieu

According to Egyptian outlet OnTime Sports, Salah has donated three million Egyptian dollars, which equates to around ₤ 129,706, to the cause.

The Liverpool forward, who was born in Nagrig, in the north of Egypt, is no stranger to helping out charitable causes, both in England and his home country.

The Sunday Times’ 2022 charitable list rates him as the eighth most generous person in the UK.

The newspaper estimates that he has recently given away some ₤ 2.5 million– equivalent to six per cent of his estimated ₤ 41m wealth. Also Read, Dixie D’Amelio Sizzling Hot in White

One of his most notable donations came in 2019, when he gave away ₤ 2.4 m to the National Cancer Institute in Cairo after it was severely damaged by a car bomb.

Salah has also helped build a hospital, school, youth centre and ambulance unit in Nagrig, as well as providing five acres of land for a waste treatment plant, allowing residents to have a safe source of clean water.

Salah is estimated to have donated more than ₤ 400,000 to help his hometown. Maher Shetia, the mayor of Nagrig, paid tribute to Salah’s generosity back in 2017.

“Salah highlighted his small village on the international map,” said Shetia. “He also built a charity and will build a school that costs millions.

This is in addition to his donations to Basioun hospital with a complete ventilation room, incubations and an ambulance unit.”

He also gave more than ₤ 500,000 worth of equipment to a children’s cancer hospital in his home country. And it is not just in Egypt where his generosity has been recognised.

During the Covid pandemic two years ago, Salah was pictured paying for some fans’ fuel in Liverpool.

Back in June, The Sunday Times ranked Salah as the eighth most charitable person in the UK. Meanwhile on the pitch, Salah netted in Liverpool’s opening Premier League game of the season at Fulham.
