Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has donated an ambulance centre to his hometown village Nagrig, near the city of Basyoun, according to Arab News report.

The centre believed to cost around $40,000 will serve 30,000 local residents in the town. Coronavirus has been spreading rapidly over the last few weeks as the total number of COVID-19 cases in Egypt has risen to over 69,000 cases.

Salah is widely known for his philanthropic act.

For instance,in 2018, the Liverpool attacker funded the construction of a girl’s school in Nagrig after it came to light that local girls had to travel long distances to receive an education. He has already paid for a football pitch and gym for his old school.

The silky left footed player and his father [Salah Ghaly] bought five acres of land in Gharbia and donated it to the local authorities to be used to build a sewage treatment plant to provide the region with clean water.

Last year he donated around $3 million to Egypt’s National Cancer Institute after a terrorist car bomb at the hospital left 20 dead and 47 injured, and caused substantial damage.
