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.

 

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.

 

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.
