El-Hakim added that this move is vital to integrate shows presented by artists with special needs with professional shows, which the ensemble aims to achieve.

Through the initiative of President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi to declare 2018 as the year of those challenged with a disability, numerous efforts and decisions have been taken to assure them proper living conditions, but indeed more efforts need to be exerted.

Disabilities in Egypt include visual, hearing, and mobility impairment, as well as mental disability.

Sisi issued law no. 10 for year 2018 on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities on Feb. 20, after being approved by the Parliament.

The new law offers many commitments by the government to persons with disabilities following the implementation of the new law including non-discrimination due to disability, or gender of the person with disabilities. The law also ensures real equality for people with special needs, and their fundamental freedom in all fields.
