Alhassan in Figures

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 Odoo ERP system. We have the only database in Egypt that has some of the physically-challenged information and we grow every day with an average of 5 beneficiaries (wheelchair users). Furthermore, we do regular modifications on our system to stay up-to-date and optimize filtering and searching for beneficiaries; based on their age, geographic area…etc.

Having a system like that helps us with all the statistics needed 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.

Many of our projects not only directly impact our beneficiaries but they also indirectly affect their family members. Physical and financial independence we seek makes the physically challenged an added-value in the community; not a burden. To show the effect we seek, imagine two people on wheelchairs. One of which has to depend on a family member in everything due to their mobility issues and the lack of proper rehabilitation and accessibility; the other is more independent and whose family doesn’t have to reschedule their entire day to help him move around.

Throughout the 6 years that the foundation been active for, we invested 32 million EGP (around 2 million USD) in our beneficiaries through our diverse services. So, thanks to your donations, we were able to directly change the lives of around 5000 wheelchair users but that actually positively impacted around 20,000 wheelchair users and their families.

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.

Winners Despite Challenges!

Dear Alhassan Foundation's believers, supporters & family…

Thanks to your donations we were able to add 15 new members to our sports program and 3 others to our arts program, in the past 3 months. These two programs showcase the hidden potentials our members have and also help them stay healthy both physically and mentally.

We’d like to share one of our beneficiaries’ success stories whose life changed after joining our sports program. In 2004, Walid became quadriplegic due to an accident at the age of 18. For years – eight, to be exact – Walid would spend his entire day in his room; eat, drink and do everything in that room. He’d play on his computer all day long just to make his day pass faster and would only leave his home for doctors’ appointments.

In 2012, Walid heard that many people with special needs were protesting and demanding for their basic human rights. He joined that protest and met other differently abled people for the first time. It opened his eyes that he’s not alone and that there is life after one’s accident.

He became a member in Alhassan foundation in 2015 and his determination to make up for lost time revealed extraordinary abilities. He joined the foundation’s table tennis team and started competing in national championships and won a total of four gold medals and a silver one. He also competed in 2019’s African table tennis championship and won a bronze medal.

We’re forever proud of being a helping hand in our members’ journey who make something of themselves despite all the challenges they face. You, our generous donor, are a partner in these success stories as well, with your donations and support we were able to properly serve these people who have been underserved for so long.

We would like to thank each and every one of you for your support. 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 wheelchair users in Egypt be more confident and accomplished. Please visit our Facebook page to read other success stories:

Alhassan's Firstborn!

Malek with his Loving Parents

Dear all Alhassan Foundation’s friends, believers & supporters,

Join us in welcoming baby boy Malek to the world! Malek is the firstborn baby of our bliss program. Bliss is a program under Rise Up that aims to empower wheelchair users socially and physically and make their dreams of having a baby come true!

As we all know, reproduction is an instinctive need and a fundamental part of the complete inclusion system for any human being. Some differently-abled couples dream of seeing their offspring but aren’t able to naturally conceive and they can’t afford microinjections. So, as part of our efforts to socially empower wheelchair users we started helping suitable candidates through the microinjection processes by paying for any needed procedures.

Our first two applicants, Abeer and Mohamed, they’re both wheelchair users and they’ve been trying to have a baby for almost three years. They applied when they heard about Bliss in the hope of finally being able to see and hold their own child.

When Malek was born, the joy the young couple were in was indescribable. Abeer, the Mother, was in tears when she held Malek in her arms. The couple couldn’t believe they were finally holding their baby, that what used to seem impossible became possible.

That inspiring couple embodies the effective inclusion we seek. They are active, both are swimmers with gold, silver and bronze medals, they both have jobs that let them support themselves and their child. Them having a child was what they felt was missing in their life and now they feel whole.

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. Please visit our Facebook page to read other success stories:
