Good example from Egypt

Dokki is one of the many neighbourhoods in Cairo. There is nothing special about it. Nothing apart from……..KFC. This world wide fast food chain opened there  restaurant which hires only hearing impaired people. It was established around 1995 probably as a first such KFC in the world. Have a look how the ordinary working day in this special place looks like.

Hearing loss and deafness is quite big problem in Egypt. World Health Organization estimates that more than 13 million people suffer from this disability. Poor healthcare, diseases as meningitis, rubella and practice of close relatives marriages only impede struggle with the problem. Hopefully disable in Egypt will be given more job opportunities and not only in Cairo.
