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

The cause of the fire incident in the St. Abu-Seifein Church was unknown. However, police said that an initial investigation has revealed that the electrical short-circuit could have caused the fire in Church.

The incident at the Church took place when the congregation was underway on Sunday.

Salah is not new to generous donations with Salah, captain of the Egyptian national team, donating oxygen cylinders to help coronavirus patients in his hometown Nagrig.

Through his charity organization, which was founded in 2017, Salah has made several donations to communities in Egypt.

Darwin Nunez singles out Liverpool talisman Mo Salah for praise

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Darwin Nunez has sent a word of gratitude to his Liverpool teammate Mohamed Salah for the role he has played in helping him settle in quickly.

Nunez has appeared to put a shaky start behind him by bagging four goals in a substitute appearance before helping Liverpool win the Community Shield.

The striker arrived with a lot of promise after lighting up the Portuguese League last season. But a couple of point-blank misses and poor touches had fans doubting his potential.
