The sensory room was opened today (04.11.2022) in the Integrated Children’s Services run by Equilibrium.
“We have long dreamed of such a sensory room, and it turned into reality thanks to the four Lions Clubs in Ruse,” said Milena Nedelcheva, director of the centre.
The room is essential and important in working with over 50 children with disabilities in the day centre. It allows children who have sensory disorders and experience difficulties in accepting information with their various senses to compensate for these deficits. It can also have a calming effect and counteract anxiety. Equilibrium specialists are ready to use the new facility on a daily basis.
Our organization is hugely grateful to our benefactors and the Lions Club was represented at the official opening of the sensory room. Vladislav Simchev representing District Lions Clubs in Bulgaria cut the tape that blocked the threshold. He was watched by Natalia Konstantinova, -ex-president of Lion’s Club Sexaginta Prista, Dr. Rosina Mircheva, current President of Lion’s Club Sexaginta Prista and Petka Rusinova, a member of Lions Club.
The opening address made on behalf of the Mayor of Ruse Municipality, Mr. Pencho Milkov, was given by Mrs. Katya Petrova, Director of the Directorate of Humanitarian Affairs as well as Mrs. Milena Vlahova, Director of Regional Directorate of Social Assistance. Partners and supporters of Equilibrium attended the official opening.
We should also congratulate the team at the centre who worked hard to support the creation of the sensory room. Well done!
