It's not Disabled.. It's Differently Abled NOW!

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

We started 2019 with an amazing event for our physically challenged kids (wheelchair users) to promote raising our kids to love and support their peers with no prejudice or stereotyping, and to let our kids on wheels live a happy active life like their peers.

Our kids on wheels are trying to have a normal life, but in order to achieve that they need accessible schools, homes, and facilities. Our role as a foundation is to show our community that these kids are active kids that can live normally if we provided them with their needs. We are so proud of our kids on wheels and we urge you all to feel the same.

We organized a huge event less than a couple of month ago as the biggest Funday social gathering for kids with disabilities in Egypt. Our kids on wheels were having fun, showing their talents and interacting & playing with abled people.

This event was organized & sponsored by our foundation in collaboration with different stakeholders & partners as volunteers and facilitators during this amazing event. The kids were so happy and felt that they belong to a bigger loving and welcoming community.

Check the event video in the link below:

We hope that you can support us in nurturing these efforts to broaden our services and organize similar events in several schools, universities, social clubs, malls, public places and everywhere. Help us raise the awareness and educate the next generation on inclusion, accessibility and on how to deal with their peers if they look different or if they have any physical challenges. Collaborate with us in nurturing our kids on wheels talents to have more self-esteem and trust that THEY CAN do whatever they dream of and work for. That will make our communities live better, healthier and happier for sure.

On another note, we just want to draw your attention that "The Differently Abled"   the concept that we proposed several years ago as a new image/classification for People with Disabilities in Egypt is now an official term used by the media & the government to honor and acknowledge the PWDs in Egypt.

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:
