Dear Alhassan’s Donors,

We do highly thank you for your last donation. You are making a noticeable change in people with mobility issues’ lives in Egypt. Providing source of income for a person with physical challenges is a vital tool to have a balanced life that helps him/her to become independent financially and socially.

Through your donation, you helped in supporting a whole family financially. This family, now, is able to live a decent life. The story starts by Mahmoud who is married, and he has a young daughter. He had a car accident two years ago. This accident led him to be paralyzed. He is Paraplegic which means that he lost the ability to use or move his lower body. He became a permanent wheelchair-user. He lives in a rural area, a poor place in Egypt. Additionally, Countryside areas in Egypt is inaccessible, no available transportation to pursue a decent job. He faced two challenges, which are being a permanent wheelchair-user and the difficulty of finding a job.

With your support, you served Mahmoud financially and socially. We have been able to furnish a shop next to his house and provide him with basic commodities. This shop is for spare parts for Rickshaw or so called “Tuk-Tuk” in Egypt. Rickshaw is originally denoted a two or three-wheeled passenger cart. This kind of transportation is very well-known in the countryside of Egypt. Now, he has this shop selling the spare parts. Mahmoud said, “Now, I am a real husband and father whom can earn money for my small family”. Now, he is able to fully support his family and be financially independent.

Lately, we won an honorary award of Zero Project Conference 2019 to acknowledge that we are sustainable in our mission and vision and we are always seeking for the betterment of life for physically challenged people through changing their disability into ability. This Award ceremony was held in the UN premises in Vienna which focused on Independent Living and Political Participation. This honorary award is not only for us, it is for you as well our donor. Congratulations for all of us. We encourage you to continue supporting us and staying loyal donor to our purpose through subscribing to a monthly recurring donation option. That will help wheelchair users in Egypt be more independent and successful.
