The Nagrig Charity Association in Basyoun city, Gharbiya announced that Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah donated an oxygen tank to the Basyoun Central Hospital after oxygen shortages were reported in government hospitals, allegedly leading to some deaths.
During a phone-in with “Hadith al-Qahira” on the “al-Qahira wal Nas” (Cairo and the People) channel on Sunday, the association’s director Hassan Bakr noted that Salah is known to frequently aid humanitarian efforts in Egypt by donating huge sums of money.
As an example, Bakr pointed out the time Salah contributed to building an Azhar religious institute at his own expense, helped construct an ambulance unit for the ambulance authority in Gharbiya, and donated LE50 million to the National Cancer Institute after it was struck by a car bomb in 2019.
The Liverpool striker also established the Nagrig Charity Association in 2017, which helps take care of orphans, widows, the elderly and the sick and provides monthly cash assistance.
The association has helped roughly 400-500 people regularly.
Bakr added that through the Nagrig Charity Association, Salah and his family donated oxygen cylinders to help COVID-19 patients in the village.
