Dear Alhassan donors, supporters and believers,

Thank you for donating to “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 people 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.

On a sunny day, we held an orientation gathering in an open area after suspending this activity for 10 months. This meeting was essential since many of our newcomers had little to no internet access and couldn’t watch the orientation sessions we held online over the past months. Those newcomers were eager to hear about our initiatives and how we could possibly serve them, accordingly, we held this meeting while asking everyone to keep their masks on at all times.

There were so many fun activities. Our first activity was a trivia competition. People positively engaged and competed against each other and there were giveaways for the right answers like: coloring books for children, color pencils and t-shirts. “Life on Wheels” book was also one of the giveaways for those who needed it. The second activity was a competition between three or four tables, they were asked to list all names that start with the given alphabet letter and the winning table would get gifts. The third activity was the core activity. Our team introduced themselves, we started by sharing the Foundation’s mission, vision and values. We proceeded with explaining our projects and their criteria whilst raising the awareness of beneficiaries and their parents and rooting the concept of being Differently Abled.

Everyone, Wheelers and their family, networked and exchanged experiences and even started new friendships. Kids who already got some of our services attended the event and they inspired other kids and their families to be as active and independent as them. Some parents couldn’t even believe that kids on wheelchairs can do that!

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.
