The Egyptian Autistic Society has chosen actress Shereen Reda as an ambassador for their autism awareness campaign Pass On The Light, which is held annually to raise awareness of autism in Egypt.

Reda appears in the film Al-Daif (“The Guest”), which is currently showing in cinemas.

The film is directed by Hadi El-Bagoury and written by Ibrahim Eissa.

Her next film, Ras Al-Sana (“The New Year”), which was directed by Mohamed Ahmed Sakr and written by Mohamed Hefzy, will be released soon.

Reda has previously participated in many societal and environmental events, such as the UN celebration for World Oceans Day. She also visited the victims of the terrorist bombings in the churches of Tanta and Alexandria, and participated in animal welfare campaigns.

The Egyptian Autistic Society is a non-profit organisation established in 1999 with the mission of catering to individuals with autism and their families and increasing awareness of the condition.

The campaign uses the hashtag #Passonthelight.
