Egypt's autistic suffer from lack of support

Medical specialists and activists campaign about a condition that affects one in every 250 children in the country.

    Autism specialists and activists campaign annually during April to raise awareness about the condition.

    Specialists estimate that one in every 250 children in Egypt is born with autism.

    But in Egypt, there is only one centre that caters to training autistic children.
