Two Egyptian Women Become the Middle East's First Hearing Impaired Flight Attendants

Hajer Jamal and Nourhan Saad, both Egyptian, were chosen by Humanitarian Flights, an initiative which raises awareness on people with disabilities, to come aboard this international route.

Ever wondered what Dalida’s ‘Helwa Ya Baladi’ looks like in sign language? Probably not. But now that you know it happened, you've got to admit it's pretty cool. On a flight from Cairo to Khartoum, the two first hearing-impaired flight attendants in the Middle East took off, and their rendition of the song was their way of greeting passengers on board. #Adorable.


Hajer Jamal and Nourhan Saad, both Egyptian, were chosen by Humanitarian Flights, an initiative which raises awareness on people with disabilities, to come aboard this international route. After receiving training with Sudanese Badr Airlines, the pair were ready to rock these passengers’ worlds.


Last year in December another flight on the same route took on a flight attendant with Down syndrome, so we think this may start becoming an annual event. For the past two years, the International Center for Disability Sciences in Cairo, a co-sponsor of Humanitarian Flights, has worked with Badr Airlines to make this happen.
