Dear Alhassan donors, supporters, and believers

At Alhassan Foundation, we do our best to overcome the various challenges that face the differently-abled individuals through our eight developmental projects. The “Source of Income” project focuses on the financial independence aspect in wheelers’ lives.

Our project helps not only the differently-abled individuals but also plays a major role in improving their entire families’ lives. To cover the different beneficiaries’’ needs and backgrounds, the project branches into three subprojects:

1-      Funding SMEs

2-      Occupational training

3-      Employment and networking

Through your donations in the past months, we were able to provide financial independence and physical independence for many members of AlHassan Foundation. These projects not only changed wheelers’ lives, but they also impact their entire family's lives and improve their financial status.

Here is a wonderful story that shows the difference that AlHassan Foundation can make for its members who use wheelchairs, Abeer is a 30-year-old woman with polio and muscular dystrophy. Although she was severely injured and used a wheelchair since childhood.

However, she did not succumb to this injury, and decided to help her family, which has limited income. Abeer's family consists of her father and mother, in addition to 9 sisters and a brothers, her father works as a farmer with a daily wage.

Therefore, she insisted on helping her family by utilizing her talent in embroidery and tailoring clothes, Abeer did not only think about herself and her difficult circumstances, but she took upon herself her entire family, and this is the best evidence that her will and determination can overcome any obstacle.

I would like to remind you all that without your support and your generosity, it would have been impossible for any of this to be achieved, or for that smile to be drawn on the face of this family.

 

We want to thank every donor or supporter who helps us to achieve this success and we urge you to continue supporting us in our case, our hope, our dream through subscribing to monthly donation which helps us secure more funds to help more wheelchairs users and their families.

If you have any job opportunities or know someone who can help with employment the wheelchairs users please don’t hesitate to contact us at recruitment@alhassan-fdn.org

Dear Alhassan donors, supporters and believers,

Thank you for donating to our initiatives for raising “Social Awareness about Differently Abled in Egypt” project. This project is mainly what our mission and vision are about. We believe that by changing the mentality of our community and how they perceive physically-challenged people, we will spend less time and effort demanding wheelchair users’ basic human rights; it’ll be a given to consider their needs.

We walk the talk. We promote and effectively implement inclusion in our foundation. Over 50% of our board and employees are differently abled persons! Which makes us the only DPO (Disabled Persons’ Organization) in Egypt.

We believe that the fastest and most effective way to change people’s perception is showing them the real image of PWDs that they’re not aware of. Our goal is to make the society see that wheelchair users aren’t helpless, dependent and non-productive people. Accordingly, we always insist on having our gatherings in public places so people would see numerous wheelchair users socializing, being active and having fun.

 

We also make all year round awareness raising campaigns on social media. Our most recent one is called “Sport is a source of happiness”.

AlHassan Foundation is proud of establishing AlHassan Sports Academy, which includes training and qualifying talented members in various fields of sports from children and adults. One of the most important reasons for AlHassan Foundation's support for this academy is the Foundation's belief that sport is a real source of happiness, empowerment and optimism for wheelchair users.

This campaign raises awareness among wheelchair users and shows them their ability to play sports and be professional athletes, which is an effective way to stay away from depression and isolation. It enables them to develop healthy social behaviors, and encourages them to build friendships and meet new people.

 

Thank you dear donors for your donations; your support is what enables us in our mission so we urge you to continue supporting our cause and stay loyal donors to our cause through subscribing to a monthly recurring donation option. That will help kids on wheelchair in Egypt be more confident and accomplished.

Dear Alhassan Foundation’s donors, believers and supporters

Our project “Sports and Arts” is one of our core projects that offers wheelchair users the chance to live their life and pursue their hobbies and interests just like their abled peers and maintain their physical and mental health.

We want to thank you dear donor for your donation and support which enable us to continue our mission and be the stepping stone for wheelers to reach their dreams and goals.

One of our greatest achievements in AlHassan Foundation is when our members can achieve their dreams. Participating in the Tokyo Olympics 2021 is a dream that can only be achieved through a lot of perseverance and hard work, and we are proud of the participation of the members of AlHassan Foundation in this huge tournament.

Amr is a 30-year-old male who works as a pharmacist and is paralyzed as a result of spina bifida.

Despite Amr's injury, he decided to pursue his dream of being a professional athlete, he stayed consistent with his training of weightlifting and was able to achieve many medals. Not only that, but also he is now participating in Tokyo Paralympics 2021 and he is truly a symbol of ambition and perseverance.

 

On the other hand, Malak is a 17-year-old female who is paralyzed as a result of a car accident.

Despite her injury, she resisted her challenging circumstances, and showed willpower and determination that many abled adults cannot match. Malak managed to shine in the sport of swimming and achieve many medals; she will also participate in the Tokyo Paralympics 2021.

We wish them all the best and success.

 

We want to thank every donor and supporter who helped us achieve this success and we urge you to continue supporting us in our cause, our hope, our dream through subscribing to the monthly donation option, which helps us offer more opportunities to the wheelchair users in Egypt and see them become world-class champions!
