Success story

"Finally Ahmed Abu Al-Hassan has a birth certificate"; Ahmed Aboul-Hassan is a 5 years old child suffering from a disability therefore his family did not registered him; hence he could not have the regular procedures that any normal child should have. But luckily his mother participated in an awareness-raising seminar on the importance of official documents. This family has been helped to get a birth certificate for their child; the Association helped Ahmed not only in having a birth certificate but also in having his right to medical insurance. The Organization phoned the Hotline which has helped to refer Ahmed to have health insurance in Qena but his case needs some medical examination not available in Qena; the Organization is therefore working with the Hotline to help Ahmed as the economic status of his family can not afford travelling to Cairo to have the requested examination.

"My ID helped me to enjoy my rights" The day when Mother of Hagar Mohamed passed away was one of the hardest day she has ever lived but it was harder to know that she had a saving account in the postal office, but she can not have this money as she has no identity card to prove her identity; meanwhile her husband is a simple man who is unable to help her to prove her rights. Hagar participated in one of the awareness-raising seminars on the importance of official documents through which she knew the required papers, she prepared her papers and made use of the imaging machine sent to the village with the help of the project's NGO to complete the procedures of having the ID. A week later, she received her ID. Immediately after she went to the post office and got her money; hereafter her living conditions have been changed.
