Egypt international winger made another great gesture after paying for part of the fees of an Egyptian child’s bone marrow transplant surgery.

Abdelrahman Mahmoud, from the city of Tanta, suffers from cancer and is being currently treated in the 57357 Children Hospital in Egypt.

The child’s father wanted to help make his son’s wish to meet football players come true and tried to find someone to connect him with Egyptian football stars and Al Ahly club to visit his child.

“We’ve reached someone who lives in a town close to the player’s village and then managed to talk to the player’s father who told him about my son’s case,” the child’s father told DMC Sport channel. “He contacted us and talked to Abdelrahman on the phone since he is not in Egypt now and told him that he will be visiting him once he’s back.”

The 25-year-old will be contributing to the fees needed for the child’s bone marrow transplant surgery.

“Salah is in regular contact with Abdelrahman, his support had a positive effect on the child’s health,” he added.

Earlier this year, Salah also made another stunning gesture after he sent a new Liverpool shirt to Mohamed Abdel-Karim after his picture wearing a torn jumper with ‘SALAH 10’ written on its back with a pen went viral.
