Helm Foundation, in partnership with the Ministry of Social Solidarity and Vodafone Egypt Foundation, sent its Assessment Team to visit a number of rehabilitation offices in Cairo and Giza to make them accessible for people with disabilities. They started with the Rehabilitation Office in Mansheyet Nasser, which has become accessibly by building 2 ramps, as well as, equipping the center’s entrance to meet people with disabilities’ needs. The Ministry of Social Solidarity has almost 204 Rehabilitation Offices which play a main role in integrating people with disabilities in different fields of life; as they receive people with disabilities of all ages and gender with various categories to provide rehabilitation services, which include protective and counseling services for themselves and their families. Hence, Helm Foundation, in partnership with the Ministry of Social Solidarity, sent its own assessment team to visit a number of rehabilitation offices in Cairo and Giza to study the possibility of making them accessible for people with disabilities. After that, an account is created for each location/facility/office on Entaleq application and website so that people with disabilities and their families can browse different locations based on their levels of Accessibility. This is done through "Entaleq", one of Helm’s projects, in partnership with Vodafone Egypt Foundation. Through this initiative, “Helm” Team has equipped the Rehabilitation Office in Mansheyet Nasser, and that is by building a 3 meter ramp to the sidewalk that leads to center and another 7 meter ramp leading to the office; moreover, the center’s entrance was equipped to meet people with disabilities’ needs as per Entaleq’s reports that follow international accessibility standards.
