The construction of the indoor therapy pool and related amenities has been made possible by the financial support of the fund’s Swiss affiliate. The 30-square-meter pool is complemented by a dressing room, a shower room with a separate section for massage therapy, and restrooms. Featuring a heating and ventilation system for year-round operation, the pool is designed to provide access to children with physical disabilities through a ramp as well as a mechanical crane for wheelchairs.
