North Africa Nour Suliman expressed his pride in

collaborating with Mohammed Salah, and lauded

his cooperative spirit and great personality that

inspires many people around the globe.

“Our partnership with Mohammed Salah is

unique and different from any other partnership,

Mohamed Salah said “I’m very proud to be the

first individual player to partner with DHL and I’m

many charitable causes, such as recycling and

providing care to the elderly and orphans in un-

derprivileged areas.
