Support for the Foundation "Life with Down Syndrome"
Today, on March 21st – International Down Syndrome Day, we’re taking part in a ‘Colorful Challenge’ to show support for the colorful and sunny people with Down Syndrome. We at the “Dokova and Dokov for the Future” Foundation support this challenge not only vocally, but also financially. We are happy to announce that we have provided the “Living with Down Syndrome” Foundation with free funding in the amount of BGN 23,500 to cover the costs of the “Adapted swimming for children with Down syndrome in Varna” program for the period from July until December 2023
The Foundation “Life with Down Syndrome” provides completely free, individual swimming training for children with Down syndrome since 2018. The adapted swimming project takes place in different cities in Bulgaria – Varna, Sofia, Stara Zagora and Gabrovo. Swimming is valuable for the development of children with Down syndrome because it stimulates physical and psychomotor development, improves coordination, the nervous system, blood circulation, breathing, strengthens the bone system and immunity, normalizes muscle tone, has a beneficial effect on digestion, trains muscles and ligaments, reduces the load on the spine and straightens the posture. Significantly improves general motility, increases body tone.
“The Life with Down Syndrome” Foundation itself looks for funding opportunities every year, because it is extremely important that children continue to develop and not lose everything that they have achieved with a lot of effort, time and effort. That is why we, from the “Dokova and Dokov for the Future” Foundation, decided to support them in this cause.
