Liverpool’s Mo Salah buys oxygen tanks for Covid-19 patients

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has shown his selfless nature by helping those who are suffering from Covid-19 at the hospital in his home town of Nagrig in Egypt.

The 28-year-old, who was born in the north-western Egyptian village, has funded oxygen tanks at the hospital to add to a long list of kind acts.

Speaking to a Cairo radio station, NCA director Hassan Bakr has said: “Salah and his family have donated oxygen cylinders to the Basyoun Central Hospital to help coronavirus patients in Nagrig.

“He often intervenes in problems back in Egypt by donating.”

Salah donated food and fresh meat back in April when the pandemic started to spread through the area, and the £30,000 donation he made to build an ambulance station serves 30,000 local people.

The NCA serves around 500 people in need, which includes those of all ages.

Salah has recently provided funds for sports facilities, a girls’ school, an ambulance station, and a sewage treatment plant. Having founded his charity association back in 2017.

Sadio Mane is another who is also known to help out in his homeland, with the Liverpool forward donated over £40,000 last year to help the fight against coronavirus in Senegal.

James Milner and Thiago Alcantara both have their own charities while Andy Robertson launched his AR26 Foundation in November.

Liverpool return to action when they host Manchester United on January 17.
