Dear Alhassan Foundation’s friends, believers and supporters,

Happy New Year!

Sports and Arts project is one of our core projects; it offers an outlet for wheelchair users to socialize and learn new skills while maintaining their physical and mental health.

In 2019, Alhassan teams had great achievements in many sports, we scored a total of 64 medals in all of the sports we have teams for; swimming, tennis, table tennis, weightlifting, karate and boccia.

In this report we would like to share our achievements in swimming, our teams participated in three different championships:

  • Egypt’s Cup in Swimming (won 5 gold, 6 silver and 2 bronze medals).
  • Egypt’s Cup in Swimming – for severe physical disability (won 2 silver and 4 bronze medals).
  • Egypt’s National Championship – for severe physical disability (won 2 silver and 2 bronze medals).

Thanks to your donations we were able to support and sustain these teams and cover for the beneficiaries’ trainings, a healthy meal, transportation and accommodations.

We would like to thank every one of you for your support. We urge you to continue supporting our cause and staying 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:

Dear Alhassan Foundation’s friends, believers and supporters,

Happy New Year!

Alhassan Foundation is starting this new year with some exciting news! The Arabic version of Gary Karp’s “Life on wheels” will be officially released next Book Fair, by the end of January. We worked hard for over a year to make that possible and, finally, it is paying off!

That book will be like a user guide for wheelchair users; teaches them how to cope with their new life circumstances after their spinal cord injury. It will not only help wheelchair users adapt to their new challenge, it will also help their families and friends understand what their loved ones are going through and what they can do to support and motivate them.

That book along with our CD’s, that teach activities of daily life, and the peer counseling sessions we periodically hold will work hand in hand to plant the ”Yes, I can!” attitude in our beneficiaries and empower them physically and psychologically.

Beside the physical and psychological empowerment, we also offer social empowerment through our latest initiative “Bliss” which is a service that aims to help wheelchair users embrace the social aspect of life. We are now working with new couples to make their dreams of having a baby come true!

With the three above-mentioned rehabilitation fronts that we cover – physical, psychological and social – we complete our beneficiaries’ circle of life and lead them to an independent and inclusive life.

We would like to thank every one of you for your support. We urge you to continue supporting our cause and staying 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:

Changing How People perceive Wheelers

Orientation Day

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 people 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 hold bimonthly meetings at our premises to raise the awareness of some public figures and other influencing people among their circles to spread the word that we are differently abled NOT disabled. During these meetings, we showcase our activities, achievements, beneficiaries’ success stories and get attendees’ feedback and suggestions on what we can do differently so we could grow and evolve.

These attendees are always awed by the life-changing impact our projects have on our beneficiaries and amazed by the willpower of these beneficiaries who did not let barriers and challenges stop them.

As part of our social awareness initiatives, we held the regular orientation day in which we invite new beneficiaries so they would know about our projects and initiatives. We travel to different governorates to reach more people who need our services.

Donate to Alhassan this GivingTuesday and help us win a share of half a million USD from GlobalGiving. Don't wait too long, there's only few hours left!

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.
