Dear Alhassan donors, supporters, and believers,

Thank you for donating to Egyptian Kids on Wheels project. Your donations play a major role in changing kids’ lives. Helping kids developing a positive and healthy attitude towards their physical challenge is the first step towards success and self-realization.

 

Through this project, we offer the following services for kids:

  1. A customized wheelchair that fits the injury and needs of each kid.
  2. Physical and psychological rehabilitation that aims to change their mindset. Not only for the kids, but also for their parents.
  3. Recreational events and awareness campaigns throughout the year that encourages networking and exchanging experiences.
  4. Sports programs in six different sports and numerous arts workshops.
  5. Providing accessible transportation and accommodation for the kids.

Some people mistakenly believe that education, food and clothing are only the vital needs of children using wheelchairs, but we at AlHassan Foundation know that children who use wheelchairs are just like other children that they aspire to be special. We must develop their artistic and athletic skills.

AbdulRahman, 13 years old, who suffers from spina bifida, he joined AlHassan Foundation in 2017, After only five years of joining the program, he was able to win the bronze medal for swimming in the Egyptian championship.

We at AlHassan have full faith that our children are the future and we strive to make it a better future for them and for us.

I want to tell you frankly that our kids’ smile worth a lot. We’re forever proud that you helped us be a part of these kids’ journeys. Witnessing the changes these kids and their parents go through is so precious and indescribable.

We want to thank 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 through subscribing to the monthly donation option, which helps us secure more funds to help more wheelchairs users and their families.

  4. Recreational events and awareness campaigns throughout the year that encourages networking and exchanging experiences.
  5. Sports programs in six different sports and numerous arts workshops.

 

This time we have a story of inspiration and will, as we all know the challenges faced by any family of a child using a wheelchair.

Starting with the difficulty in moving and leaving the house, or how can his parents will deal with him, and how society will accept him.

But what if there is a family with 3 children who are wheelchair users living together, here the father and mother face three times the suffering as any other family.

Our story today is the story of Karim, Ahmed, and Nweiri, three children aged 5, 7, and 9 years old, respectively.

When these three children joined the AlHassan Foundation, we started providing them with physical and psychological rehabilitation for them and their families.

After that, they received customized wheelchairs for each one of them, and I cannot describe to you their happiness or even the happiness of their parents.

 

I want to tell you frankly that our kids’ smile worth a lot. We’re forever proud that you helped us be a part of these kids’ journeys. Witnessing the changes these kids and their parents go through is so precious and indescribable.

We want to thank 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 through subscribing to the monthly donation option, which helps us secure more funds to help more wheelchairs users and their families.

Some people may think that kids using wheelchairs have limited capabilities as a result of their injury.

But here are examples that assure you that if these kids have the right tools, they can be just like all other kids.

 

Abdul Rahman is a 9-year-old boy who suffers from Spina bifida and he is a student in the fourth grade of primary school. Unfortunately, he is suffering from his inability to go to school, due to his use of the traditional wheelchair, which is very heavy.

After Abdul Rahman received his new customized wheelchair, he went to school daily.

Abdul Rahman is dreaming of joining the team work of AlHassan Foundation when he grew up, so that he can help other children who are going through the same difficulties that he faced

 

I want to tell you frankly that our kids’ smile worth a lot. We’re forever proud that you helped us be a part of these kids’ journeys. Witnessing the changes these kids and their parents go through is so precious and indescribable.

But here are examples that assure you that if these kids have the right tools, they can be just like all other kids.

Mariam is an 8-year-old girl from Alexandria who suffers from spina bifida. Some were questioning her ability to enroll in school, but after providing her with customized wheelchair, she became able to go to school on a regular basis, she is now in the second grade of primary school.

Also, Youssef is an 11-year-old boy from Cairo who suffers from paraplegia. He just needed a customized wheehchair so that he could go to school on a regular basis.

Now Youssef is in the first year of middle school. We are proud of these children and we are proud to call them AlHassan Foundation's kids.

 

I want to tell you frankly that our kids’ smile worth a lot.

Here are some pictures that show the smile on the faces of these children after receiving their customized wheelchair.

With the beginning of each new school year, all families begin to prepare their children with new clothes and school bags.

But there are many families that have children who do not receive the new school year with the same preparations, those are our kids on wheelchairs, there is nothing more painful than a child who was destined to sit in a wheelchair and not move like other children of his age.

And that is why, in AlHassan Foundation, we have made all our efforts to help these families prepare their children and provide them with customized wheelchair Specially made to fit every child's injury, age and size.

A size-raising sessions took place for approximately 36 children of AlHassan Foundation. and a total of 68 children have received the customized wheelchair, in the past 3 months

I want to tell you frankly that our kids’ smile worth a lot.

Here are some pictures that show the smile on the faces of these children after receiving the customized wheelchair.

We’re forever proud that we’re part of these kids’ journeys. Witnessing the changes these kids and their parents go through is so precious and indescribable.
