El-Mandara beach on the Mediterranean coast is ready to welcome people with vision disabilities with new passages and access signs, according to the official Facebook page of the Alexandria governorate.

Alexandria Governor Mohamed El Sherif inaugurated the beach in the Al Mandara district to be the first beach for people with vision disabilities.

“This beach comes as a continuation of efforts made by the Governorate of Alexandria to provide best services for people of disabilities, to achieve principles of community integration and create a decent life for them,” said El-Sherif.

The Central Administration of Tourism and Resorts in Alexandria announced that they are preparing a walk for people with disabilities at Mandara beach, free of charge.

Egypt witnessed an unprecedented boom during the past decade in rehabilitating people with disabilities, as the state took several steps to ensure the rights of disabled people in education, health, job opportunities, and pension.

This includes the issuance of Law No. (11) of 2019, forming the National Council for Persons with Disabilities. Egypt’s President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi issued law no. 10 for 2018 on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities on February 20, after being approved by the Parliament.
