Thanks to the “Marea Neagra” Psychological Centre the first ever Therapeutic Beach was inaugurated in Romania, at the seaside resort of Mamaia.
The beach, which is located in the Casino area, is accessible for all categories of people with disabilities, romania-insider.com underlines.
A relevant press release read that in order for people in wheelchairs to be able to access it, organisers have installed on the sand the first such ramp in Romania.
The area of the beach, “includes an area of flavors – where tourists can guess and enjoy over 20 scents and essences, a bamboo forest – where children can create their own songs by hitting the bamboo sticks, the rainbow – colorful curtains of different textures arranged in the area of tactile stimulation, and a pottery workshop.” Furthermore, there are “facilities, such as a floating dock for the children and specially built mobile armchairs that can move on the sand and can also float on the sea.”
Psychologist and president of the “Marea Neagra” Psychological Centre, Adrian Gemănaru said, “Although it is a project that addresses without discrimination the whole community, the project was financially supported by me and by a handful of friends with whom I have gathered the sum of EUR 45,000 to finance this project.
It is painful to see that the state doesn’t give a helping hand to those people who need our love and attention, but I am also very happy that people have come to their help, understood the importance of such a project on the beach of Mamaia, and thus we were able to launch the therapeutic beach, unique in Europe.”…. / IBNA
