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

Good News J! It’s our pleasure to announce that our Foundation Swimming team has achieved amazing results through winning 12 medals in the Latest National Swimming Championship in Egypt for persons with physical challenges.

Through your donations and our partnership with socially responsible sport clubs we were able to sponsor these champions and provide them with all what they need to thrive. We provided such as trainers, specialized wheelchairs, meals, and others. Our champions won 3 golden medals, 5 silver, and 4 bronze.

For our talented band performers, they had several concerts during the last three months, and the audience were amazed by their talent and confidence. Not only that, but also many national and satellite TV channels invited them to be their guests, which had major effect on the social awareness of our community about physically challenged people to perceive them as Differently Abled.

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:

We Reached to 3000 Wheelchair Users in Egypt!

Knowledge is power
Knowledge is power

Greetings from Alhassan Foundation to all believers & supporters around the globe,

Thank you our beloved donor for your continuous support for wheelchair users in Egypt! You are one of the few who believed in knowledge and its major impact on empowering wheelchair users in Egypt and around the world. We were able to support & collect data for 3000 wheelchair users in Egypt and we are hoping for more with your support.

As you might know that there is no accurate data about wheelchair users in Egypt or even about any other physical challenges/disability. Consequently even when there are resources to help PWDs in Egypt neither do the government nor any other NGO can actually determine the exact needs of these people or what type of resources or facilities are demanded to be able to help them properly. As a result we decided to provide this crucial service to be the source of information for anyone can help in or outside Egypt.

We were able to classify and manage data mining for 3000 wheelchair users in Egypt using Odoo ERP system to provide the most efficient detailed data about those 3000 persons including their type of disability with date and time of injury if applicable. Also, we classified them based on their city of residence, education, gender, age, employment status, needs, and what type of project that they benefit from or will fit them. All this and more helps us determine exactly what type of needs and resources to claim from the government or any other entity offered help. Not only that we aim to make this data available for any other entity wants to serve and support wheelchair users in Egypt.

Because knowledge is power, our goal is to reach to the 3 million wheelchair users who lives in Egypt so we will be able to better support and empower them to benefit from their potential & talents.

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 for a monthly recurring donation which will help securing more funds to help wheelchair users in Egypt be financially independent.

Changing a person's life with less than $3000!

1st model on wheelchair
1st model on wheelchair

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

Let’s all celebrate life together with providing another person with hope to live his life with less daily challenges due to his physical condition. With less than $3000 you are pulling a person from depression to hope, and from living a useless life to searching for his/her mission in life.

I won’t be exaggerating if I told you that providing this customized wheelchair, which is tailored made for the person based on his/her health condition or injury, height, weight, and needs, is actually changing their lives. Riding this efficient light-weighted wheelchair made their daily lives easier, which encouraged them to be more confident in their ability, and have self-esteem. This wheelchair is proving our slogan, which is we are not disabled we are DIFFERENTLY ABLED.

One of our previously beneficiary and currently employee in our beloved foundation used to feel insecure in her old traditional wheelchair, but after receiving her customized wheelchair, which is tailored exactly to suit her condition (Atrophy of muscles) decided to be the 1st model on wheelchair in Egypt. She knows that the modeling industry is all about appearance, but she had this amazing self-esteem & enthusiasm that pushed her to take this major initiative and she is still trying to change society's perception about wheelchair users through also participating in a dancing team that includes wheelchair users as performers. Changing lives can be as simple as changing a wheelchair!

Check her story here:

We also provide electric wheelchairs for Quadriplegia cases and adjustable wheelchairs for kids to fit their age & condition. Adding to that we are also providng a periodic maintenance for this customized wheelchair through our 1st and only customized wheelchair maintenance service in Egypt to guarantee its sustainability.

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:
