CAIRO – 10 May 2017: Egypt's first ever diving expedition specifically designed to accommodate people of special needs, who in this case happen to tourists of Polish origins, has been organized by an Abu Soma diving center in the town of Safaga.
The expedition will be an exploration of Safaga's coral reefs, according to the owner of the United Divers Center, Hamada Saad.
Saad further clarified that the diving trip includes 24 people with special needs all individually accompanied by professional caretakers that are qualified professionals belonging to a special needs center in Poland known as Tomasens.
Saad also stated that the special needs tourists were enamored with Safaga's coral reefs and noted its luscious quality during their Red Sea expedition.
The head of the tour guides' union at the Red Sea, Basher Abu Talib, also pointed out that many countries such as Poland, Germany, and America exert substantial efforts at providing recreational services to tourists of special needs and that it often leads to very lucrative business. He also expressed his wish that Egypt would follow suit.
Abu Talib further elaborated that he feels that if Egypt allocates greater efforts to organizing touristic expeditions for people of special needs then it would reap tremendous commercial rewards, producing a major boost for the country's tourism sector.
