Challenge

- There are 30 million people with physical challenges in the Arabic-speaking countries. Most or even all of the helpful Occupational Therapy tutorials are in foreign languages. - Some wheelchair users feel unfortunate after their accidents/medical reasons which led them to use wheelchairs. When they don't have the proper psychological rehabilitation, they face negative emotions & have a hard time accepting their new life. - Some permanent wheelchair users may be unable of naturally having kids

Solution

1- We offer Arabic-speaking video tutorials with no fees offered for all wheelchair users in the MENA region and maybe the whole world featured on YouTube and CDs. 2- One-to-one peer advice meetings and group therapy gatherings to sustain members mental and emotional health and to develop positive attitude towards their physical challenge and towards their communities. 3- Help differently-abled couples have a baby via Bliss program by the use of microinjections (IVF or ICSI).

Long-Term Impact

Dignity, independence, and self-esteem will be boosted through these video tutorials & group support, and that will happen after wheelchair users learn to depend on their own capabilities. Consequently that will help the society achieve effective inclusion & integration for the differently abled.
