The Ministry of Culture has just announced that all state theatres across the nation will be equipped with wheelchair access to serve people with disabilities, in addition to elderly visitors. This crucial initiative has already been implemented in the Egyptian Opera House in all its theatres across Cairo, Alexandria and Damanhour. The minister also added that the initiative will facilitate access for many visitors especially considering the highly positive reception of numerous theatricals shows across Egypt, slipping in a pretty sly humblebrag that we don't mind hearing about our theatres. Why wouldn't you want as many people as possible to see them?

This falls under various other positive steps towards the inclusion of and the fight against discrimination towards people with disabilities in Egypt, with last year's striking of offensive terms for people with Down Syndrome from textbooks, as well as Egypt hosting the first-ever Pan-African paralympics earlier this month. This will hopefully pave the way for further advancements in the same direction - speaking of paving, how about some slopes on more of the sidewalks next?
