Dear Alhassan donors, supporters and believers,

Thank you for donating for our initiatives for raising “Social Awareness about Differently Abled in Egypt” project. This project is mainly what our mission and vision are about. We believe that by changing the mentality of our community and how they perceive physically-challenged people, we will spend less time and effort demanding wheelchair users’ basic human rights; it’ll be a given to consider their needs.

We walk the talk. We promote and effectively implement inclusion in our foundation. Over 50% of our board and employees are differently abled persons! That makes us the first if not the only DPO (Disabled Persons’ Organization) in Egypt.

We believe that the fastest and most effective way to change people’s perception is showing them the real image of PWDs that they’re not aware of. Our goal is to make the society see that wheelchair users aren’t helpless, dependent and non-productive people. Accordingly, we always insist on having our gatherings in public places so people would see numerous wheelchair users socializing, being active and having fun.

Because we believe in a true message, which is that the true inclusion of all the different societal groups is the best way to achieve a happy and just society.

Alhassan Foundation for the Differently abled inclusion signed a cooperation protocol with the Hope Giver Campaign to highlight on the success models of wheelchair users in Egypt.

We were pleased to be side by side with the breast cancer fighters from Baheya Foundation and other foundations that's supporting Orphans Children in Egypt.

We hope that with your support Alhassan Foundation will become a model of the hope for wheelchair users in Egypt and the entire Arab world.

 

Thank you dear donors for your donations; your support is what enables us in our mission so 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 kids on wheelchair in Egypt be more confident and accomplished.

Alhassan Foundation started in 2012 and our goal was to provide every wheelchair user in Egypt with services that would achieve the physical and financial independence.

We started with 10 members and ended in 2022, serving more than 6000 people directly and more than 40 thousands beneficiaries indirectly.

We are proud of our 10 years of work and diligence to achieve our goals towards empowering wheelchair users in Egypt.

We aspire to make Alhassan Foundation the first destination for all wheelchair users in Egypt, and to be an example that can be replicated in all Arab countries for serving people with disabilities.

Accordingly, we always insist on having our gatherings in public places so people would see numerous wheelchair users socializing, being active and having fun.

 

We also make all year round awareness raising campaigns on social media. Our most recent one is called “Powerful Female Wheelers of Egypt”.

Its goal is to empower women who use wheelchairs and foucs on the distinguished models that have been able to face societal challenges.

One of the most beautiful stories is the karate champion, Youmna.

 she became a wheelchair user after suffering from a spinal cord infection while she was still a child,

but she was diligent and completed her education until she joined the Faculty of Engineering.

She joined Alhassan Foundation in 2016 and was interested in sports, so she joined Alhassan Karate team and won first place for 4 consecutive years.

Youmna says: "I thought that the wheelchair was the end of the world and that there were no dreams, but I discovered that it was just the beginning."

Dear Alhassan donors, supporters and believers,

Thank you for donating to our initiatives for raising “Social Awareness about Differently Abled in Egypt” project. This project is mainly what our mission and vision are about. We believe in that by changing the mentality of our community and how they perceive physically-challenged people. If that was accomplished, we will be spending less time and effort demanding for wheelchair users’ basic human rights; it’ll be a given to consider their needs.

We walk the talk. We promote and effectively implement inclusion in our foundation. Over 50% of our board and employees are differently abled persons! Which makes us the only DPO (Disabled Persons’ Organization) in Egypt.

We believe that the fastest and most effective way to change people’s perception is showing them the real image of PWDs that they’re not aware of. Our goal is to make the society see that wheelchair users aren’t helpless or dependent people. Accordingly, we always insist on having our gatherings in public places so people would see numerous wheelchair users socializing, being active and having fun.

We also always carry out awareness campaigns aimed at increasing community awareness, and this is one of the greatest of those campaigns entitled Our Kids, Our Future.

Young wheelers are like any other kids whether having simple or big dreams,, they will be happy with any word of encouragement and are affected by any kind of bullying.

These are simple examples of these children's dreams.

Youssef is from Minya governorate, he is 7 years old. All his dreams are to become an officer and help the needy. He may not be able to achieve his dream, but you can help him keep dreaming and pursue his dream, no matter how difficult and far this dream is.

Fatima from Giza, she is a 12 year old girl, and she hopes to become a lawyer, so that she can defend the kids' rights who have physical differences so these kids avoid going through the difficulties that she is going through today.

 

 

We want to thank every donor and supporter who helped us achieve this success and we urge you to continue supporting us in our cause, our hope, our dream through subscribing to a monthly donation which helps us offer more opportunities for the wheelchair users in Egypt and see them become world-class champions!

We also make all year round awareness raising campaigns on social media. Our most recent one is called “Sport is a source of happiness”.

AlHassan Foundation is proud of establishing AlHassan Sports Academy, which includes training and qualifying talented members in various fields of sports from children and adults. One of the most important reasons for AlHassan Foundation's support for this academy is the Foundation's belief that sport is a real source of happiness, empowerment and optimism for wheelchair users.

This campaign raises awareness among wheelchair users and shows them their ability to play sports and be professional athletes, which is an effective way to stay away from depression and isolation. It enables them to develop healthy social behaviors, and encourages them to build friendships and meet new people.

 

Thank you dear donors for your donations; your support is what enables us in our mission so we urge you to continue supporting our cause and stay loyal donors to our cause through subscribing to a monthly recurring donation option.
