Free, accessible, comprehensive, user-friendly, the Erada portal provides knowledge of concern to PWD in all categories of impairment: hearing, visual, physical, mental, as well as, autism and learning difficulties. Important topics such as definitions of disabilities, laws & rights, early intervention, genetic diseases etc. are covered. Erada also provides a web creation & technical support service to ensure sustainable knowledge for concerned communities. According to 2007 WHO statistics, approximately 11% of the Egyptian population, around 9.4 million, live with some kind of disability/impairment. Given a helping hand, they can get along independently and contribute meaningfully to society.
