The Hospitalitat Foundation, Project: Leisure and free time “Meeting Point”
The Foundation Hospitalitat de la Mare de Déu de Lourdes in Barcelona aims to help and support the sick and physically disabled people and people with mental disabilities towards social integration and toward spiritual maturity being based in Christian faith. The Foundation has established several projects all over the area of Barcelona (Bernadette Day Care Center, Montjuïc Residential- Home, welfare flats …).
All their projects promote personal development and social integration of these people. Petit Món Foundation has been working for 2 years in their program “Meeting Point,” a program of recreational trips that enhance the skills and abilities of people with disabilities and promote personal growth of the participants of the project.
This program is also a way to help families with a disabled children to take a break while promoting values of solidarity of young volunteers who participate in these trips.
