The construction worksarestartinginthese weeks.
Now we would like to raise funds for the purchase of equipment and furniture to equip the therapy rooms and the rooms where the children will spend their days. In particular equip gyms, soft carpets, beds for treatment, "Bobath" balls, inclined planes, parallels, walking aids (walkers, rollators, crutches), 2 desks. Over the past 5 years we have formed through two specialized courses conducted in refugee camps, about 15 "therapists" some of which still continue to work in different villages of the refugee camps. 2 of them will be dedicated to rehabilitation activities at Casa Paradiso.
Casa Paradiso will be built near the former military hospital Bolla.
