SEA JOY OF PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES IN ALANYA
The individuals with disabilities can swim in the sea peacefully on Rainbow Accessible Public Beach, which was built in cooperation of Alanya Municipality and ALTID and support of Western Mediterranean Development Agency with the slogan “Every stroke is one life”.
Individuals with disabilities who are trained in Olympic Swimming pool within the concept of “Every stroke is one life” project of Alanya Municipality Accessible Park and Recreation Center swam in the sea on Accessible Public Beach. Residents with disabilities who were carried to the sea on special wheelchairs prepared for them swam in the sea under the control of Alanya Municipality expert physiotherapist Erdem Demir and found opportunity to cool themselves.
“A VERY BENEFICIAL ACTIVITY FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES”
Alanya Municipality Accessible Park and Recreation Center Expert Physiotherapist Erdem Demir, who gave information about the swimming activity with non-stop access on the beach with changing room, toilets for people with disabilities and chaise lounges for people with disabilities, said “Swimming is a very beneficial activity for people with disabilities both psychosocially and physically. They are fulfilling a very funny physical activity in which they are able to use their physical capacity in maximum level after taking the necessary precautions to minimize the risk of trauma.”
Apart from the physical activity, the program enables the people with disabilities to get the necessary rehabilitation support for their muscular development.
