Individuals and families affected by PWS who are living in Egypt and the Middle East now have an established community to find help and hope. PWSA Egypt and Middle East was officially founded on June 1, 2023 by Walaa Mohamed, mom to Ahmed, 13, living with PWS. PWSA Egypt & Middle East will serve the entire Arab and Middle East region.
Over the past two years, PWSA | USA has assisted with laying the foundation by hosting several zoom sessions to connect specialists in the PWS world with Walaa and several other PWS family members in Egypt. A special thank you to the International Prader-Willi Syndrome Organisation (IPWSO) for providing grant funding to start the official organization.
The organization is now in the process of finalizing its official name and registration, and is preparing for the first parent and caregiver kick-off workshop in Egypt. To learn more about PWSA Egypt & Middle East, click the buttons below.
