Thanks to the involvement of Polish Aid, the disabled children of Georgia can now use the newly equipped rooms and develop under the direction of qualified therapists.

The Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs financed the redecoration of the rooms and their new equipment including, for example, multifunctional therapeutic chairs and hydrotherapy appliances. The equipment will be used to provide therapy for children with severe disabilities. In polisensory, rehabilitation, early development support and occupational therapy rooms, supervised by qualified specialists, Georgian children will now use the state-of-the-art devices for the rehabilitation they so much need for their development.
