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

We’d like to share with you a new milestone in our Journey. Thanks to your generous donations, we have delivered 43 wheelchairs to our beneficiaries in the past 3 months which brings us to a grand total of 1000 manual customized wheelchairs and electric wheelchairs delivered to our beneficiaries, kids and adults. You have contributed in changing the lives of 1000 wheelchair users in Egypt. Wheelchairs are as crucial as person’s legs. They’re the only way people with mobility issues can go about their day.

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. Riding this efficient light-weighted wheelchair made wheelers’ daily lives so much easier; consequently, that improved their self-esteem and physical independence.

Heba is a prime example of how much a customized wheelchair can change a person’s life. Heba was a very shy lady from Upper Egypt. When we first saw her she had just finished her senior year of high school and was going to study Mass Communicationin the University of Beni Suef.

During the measurement session it was evident how depressed and anxious she was. After she received her tailor-made wheelchair her life changed 180 degrees; it boosted her confidence and self-esteem. She went from being a shy and quiet lady to being the president of the students’ union. Now, she advocates for other Differently Abled students. Also, she frequently meets with the university president and demands for ramps and other accessibility options to be available throughout her University. That’s the kind of change a tailor-made wheelchair can make.

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:
