The children, with whom Equilibrium works, are looking forward to the summer camps and the summer activities at the Complex for Social Services.
Some of the kids from CSC (Centre for Street Children) are already at the seaside in Tyulenovo for a week. Right after they are back, refreshed and recharged with positive emotions, the rest of the children from CSC will go there.
The North Black Sea coast awaits the children with disabilities from the Pink house, too. Some of them, who need special care and rehabilitation will be taken to a sanatorium in Pomorie, according to the Act on Integration of Disabled People and the implementing rules that give the opportunity for this to happen through ASS.
The children and young adults from the two small-group homes “Love” and “Hope” will also enjoy the seaside in Tyulenovo. Outdoor recreation in park Lipnik in Ruse is organized for them. The children felt wonderful the last time they were there.
