Called "The fourth pyramid of Giza," "The human miracle," and "The ambassadors of Egypt," once again, Al-Nour Wal Amal (Light and Hope) Chamber Orchestra, consisting of 40 visually impaired women, captured the hearts of audiences during their latest visit to Germany.

The orchestra is part of an association with the same name — an NGO founded in 1954 by a group of volunteers under the leadership of the late Istiklal Radi with the aim of providing care and education to visually impaired girls, and to help them integrate into society.
