Egyptian Football player Salah donates $3M for reconstruction of cancer institute damaged in terror attack

Egypt’s national football team captain has donated $3 million for the reconstruction of Cairo’s cancer institute after a terror attack destroyed a part of the hospital.

Dr Mohamed Osman Elkhosht, President of Cairo University told dmc in an interview that the sum donated by the Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah represents nearly half of the amount needed to reconstruct the facility.

Part of the institute was destroyed Sunday in a major fire that broke after a collision between a car packed with explosives and three other cars. Twenty people died and over 40 others were wounded.

Authorities branded the accident a terror attack.

Mohamed Salah right after the incident expressed his condolences to the victims.
“My full support and condolences to the families of victims and victims of the explosion of the Oncology Institute,” he posted on Twitter.

The latest largess gesture is one of the many already done by the soccer star in his home country. He, on several occasions, supported causes and campaigns in Egypt.
