Title: A World Suitable for Every Child
In 2004 an association of volunteers joined the global movement for developing a world suitable for children. With great support an amusing ecological medical playground for sick children hospitalized in the children’s section of the District Hospital of Silistra (Bulgaria) was built. Sick children did not have their own green space for playing on the 50,000 m² hospital grounds. By building this complex, an optimal effect was achieved due to the combination of modern methods with those of traditional medicine. The natural components – air, water, earth, environment and sun – definitely increase and supplement the healing effect of the medical therapy. The playground as part of a preliminary project created the opportunity to give access to information that advocates healthy ways of living for children, here especially Roma children.
