It seems that Egypt is currently on a mission to make commuting easier for individuals on wheelchairs. Better late than never!
Inspiring Egyptian man, Khaled Kahiry, founded the first-ever app to commute disabled people in Egypt. It all started when Khairy noticed the difficulties his mother faced in transportation due to her age.
