Diversity is our Strength!
Dear Alhassan donors, supporters and believers,
Thank you for donating to “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 an alternate, the real image that they’re not aware of. Make them see that wheelchair users aren’t helpless, dependent and non-productive people. Accordingly, we always insist on having our gatherings at public places so people would see numerous wheelchair users socializing and doing fun activities.
We also make all year round awareness campaigns on social media. Our most recent one is called “why are they on a wheelchair?”. That kind of question is frequently directed to parents whose kids use wheelchairs. That question is unwelcomed as it makes kids feel like there’s something wrong with them.
That campaign raises awareness about the different reasons that make kids use wheelchairs, like: spinal cord injuries, muscle atrophy, brittle bones, cerebral palsy and spina bifida.
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.
