Practical Solution to Current Crisis

Dear Alhassan Foundation’s friends, believers & supporters,

We hope you’re all safe and sound during this tough time.

Nowadays equipped rides are more essential than ever given the COVID-19 global breakout. They represent a decent and cheap solution to the lack of accessible transportation whilst following social distancing measures. Since no one can tell how or when will this global pandemic end, we all need to adapt and find safe alternatives for wheelers to be able to run errands and keep their daily jobs without risking their lives. Owning an equipped ride is like having your own private transportation at very low cost.

In this project, we offer a private alternative to inaccessible public transportation and costly private transportation by providing tricycles to people who passes all official eligibility criteria. This tricycle can be drove by hand and has a place in the back in which wheelchair users can put their chair, secure it and move anywhere with it.

These equipped rides changed many wheelers lives. They facilitated the way wheelers go about their day either going to their school/university or going to their jobs or pursuing different hobbies. Their only way of doing any of this used to be by spending a fortune on daily private transportation which eventually led many wheelers to be homebound.

As for our accessible bus service, it’s temporarily suspended as we need to renew its license after quarantine. It’s also not advised to operate it during this COVID-19 crisis.

We would like to thank each and every one of you for your support. We urge you to continue supporting our cause and stay our enthusiastic donor through subscribing to a monthly recurring donation which will help securing more funds to help wheelchair users in Egypt be physically independent.

Using Information to Best Serve Wheelers

Beneficiaries Growth Through the Years
Beneficiaries Growth Through the Years

Dear Alhassan donors, supporters and believers,

We highly appreciate your continuous support to our cause. Your donations contributed to sustain our project “Info Hub” and maintain our ERP system. We have the only database in Egypt that has physically-challenged people’s information and we grow everyday with an average of 5 beneficiaries (wheelchair users).

Our team is working from home due to COVID-19 pandemic and we continue to serve our beneficiaries all over Egypt. We’re making use of quarantine time to update beneficiaries’ data, answer all their inquiries and add the services they need in their profile so we can deliver right after quarantine is over. We analyze this data to enhance our services and know who/where to target. We were also able to determine how many beneficiaries we served and how many family members were consequently impacted.

Given the recent events, we collaborated with an online academy “E3ml Business” that offers essential work skills. We used our database and ERP system to search and filter through our beneficiaries to find who are currently looking for a job. These types of skills, the academy offers, give applicants an edge and make them strong candidates to pursue the job they want.

We’re also working on registering those interested in joining Alhassan Academy for Wheelchair Basketball. It’s our latest initiative and we dream of reviving this amusing sport in Egypt. Support us so we can modify our ERP system to accommodate such upgrades.

We encourage you to continue supporting us and staying loyal donor to our causes through subscribing to a monthly recurring donation option. That will help wheelchair users in Egypt be more independent and successful.

Support Wheelers Financially Weather Tough Times

Dear Alhassan donors, supporters, and believers,

Our “Source of Income” project branches into 2 subprojects: employment and SMEs. Through these two subprojects, we were able to achieve financial independence to our beneficiaries; enable them to be bread earners NOT a burden.

Given the rough times, we’ve been all going through due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are seeking your support to be able to survive this tough time and cover the operational expenses and salaries of our employees, who are mostly wheelchair users, while working from home. Your donation will help us continue serving wheelers across Egypt and financially weather the hard time we’re all going through. In the last period, we pay more than $10,000 monthly salaries and over $38,000 operational expenses.

We’re trying to offer our beneficiaries services to support them during this tough time. As a result, we collaborated with an online academy “E3ml Business” that offers occupational skills and soft skills training in Arabic. We used our database and ERP system to search and filter through our beneficiaries to find who is currently looking for a job. These types of skills, the academy offers, give applicants an edge and make them strong candidates to pursue the job they want.

Before quarantine, we were able to hire 24 beneficiaries in different reputable entities in Egypt. One of them is Esraa who now works at the operations department in one of Egypt’s reputable banks. We’re also currently networking with different entities to employ our qualified beneficiaries in suitable jobs. Some are already accepted in these jobs and will be employed after quarantine is over.                                                                                                                  

We would like to thank each and every one of you for your support. We urge you to continue supporting our cause and stay our enthusiastic donor through subscribing to a monthly recurring donation which will help to secure more funds to help wheelchair users in Egypt be financially independent.

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