Egypt is the country in the northeast of Africa, one of the worlds oldest civilisation, with almost 97% area covered by the western desert of Sahara…Nile river being the gift and lifeline of Egypt flows through the middle of the country…most of the cities like Cairo, Alexandria, Tanta, Quena etc. are often found on the bank of the river. So apparently the politics, economy, trade, social welfare revolves around these cities. The lifestyle in Egypt is frequently disturbed due to terrorist attack, conflicts with neighbours, that is why there is still no democracy in function. In such a situation we always see a rise of a hero who becomes a ray of hope and tries to overrule the whole case. When we left with no tools for fighting against many odds Sports always builds up a bridge of dreams. Especially the Cricket matches between India and Pakistan, England and Australia, many footballs, basketball, badminton leagues, the world cups, commonwealth games around the globe etc.
Salah born in Nagrig, a small town in the gharbia governorate. His parents always taught him to live a life like an ordinary man, but salah had different plans in mind. He was damn crazy over playing football.
Despite being a small town boy, In Egypt, there is a plane painted with his image over it, posters on streets. Today he has become a most popular personality in Nagrig.
In Liverpool, there is a hotel which offers free ‘Falafels’ (traditional middle eastern food) on every goal scored by salah to all visitors present.
He has a song on his name,’ Mo salah Egyptian king..LA LA LA salah.’

Over the years we have formulated the meaning of patriotism to give sacrifice for our country in the form of providing lives.
As the time passes ( after WW 1,2), the word has taken a different meaning.
Nowadays, Sacrifices does not mean giving lives for the country but also providing a contribution to improve nations socio-economic welfare, poverty, health, education.
Salah did the same he knew what are the problems and challenges ahead of his country hence, he actively takes an interest in that and touches many issues of national importance.
He is the ambassador of the programme, to avoid teenagers who are on the verge of taking drugs illegally.
