Dear Alhassan Foundation’s friends, believers & supporters,

 

We must thank you all for your support, which enabled us to provide 112 customized wheelchairs despite all the difficulties facing the world due to the pandemic.

In Alhassan FDN we work day and night so that we can provide the physical and financial independence for all wheelchair users in Egypt.

These customized wheelchairs are tailor-made for each case based on his/her weight, height, health condition and needs. It’s made with medically approved materials, and components. It’s also provided with cushions to resist pressure sores & any possible skin irritations. Using customized wheelchairs made wheelers’ daily lives so much easier; consequently, that boosted their self-esteem and physical independence.

We at AlHassan Foundation always aim to be present to serve our members everywhere and in every governorate in Egypt. So we are sharing with you a true inspirational story that shows the impact of providing customized wheelchairs for all wheelchair users.

Fawzia is a 26-year-old female from Sharqia governorate. She suffers from hemiplegia as a result of an accident she had 12 years ago.

And Even though Fawzia was from a distant village and despite her severe injury, she loved sports very much, she started training with Alhassan FDN after getting her customized wheelchair to play table tennis for wheelchair users 4 years after her injury and became one of the best table tennis players in the Egyptian national team.

After years of diligent training, she was able to qualify for the Paris 2024 Paralympics to represent the Egyptian national team and represent every woman who uses a wheelchair who is not afraid of challenges.

We want to thank each and every donor or supporter who helps us to achieve this success and we urge you to continue supporting us in our cause, our hope, our dream. You can support us through subscribing to be a recurring donor which helps us secure more funds to help more wheelchairs users and their families.
