Heba Atef Becomes the First Egyptian Flight Attendant With Down Syndrome

On a trial-trip from Cairo to Sudan under the name “Journey for Humanity”, Heba Atef, a third-year student at the Arab Open University’s Faculty of Information, took her first flight, not as a passenger, but as Egypt’s first flight attendant with Down Syndrome and she totally managed to steal our hearts.

According to Al Watan, the trip was organized and chaired by the General Coordinator of the International Committee for Disability of the United Nations in Egypt, Reda Abdel Aziz. The “Humanitarian Journey” started on a plane to Khartoum filled with people with Down Syndrome accompanied by their families to hold workshops and forums that aim to support people with special needs.

The trip is going to continue till Thursday, December 5th, to send a message to the world and to raise more awareness on Down syndrome.
