The Cedar Foundation superheroes are faced with yet another serious challenge - to raise funds for summer camps for 30 disadvantaged children. Due to the pandemic the children have been confined to the Small Group Homes with reduced physical activity and without the chance to travel during the vacations. To celebrate their success in raising the necessary funds, the team will climb one of the country's highest peaks dressed as superheroes.
Disadvantaged children and children with physical and mental disabilities are one of the most vulnerable groups of people in a pandemic situation. The strict preventative measures for social distance and isolation are presenting a big challenge to their health due to the reduced time spent outdoors and the lesser physical activity. Isolation and the continuous time spent within the household of the Small Group Homes causes increased levels of anxiety as well as unwanted weight gain.
The Cedar team is planning to organize 2 summer camps for 30 of the children in its care. The camps will take place in the mountain and at the coast and will include activities to improve the children's physical condition and overall body fitness. For those with severe physical disabilities, a variety of medicinal massages and rehabilitation procedures will be scheduled.
The activities in open air will improve the physical and mental health of the children, strengthen their interpersonal relations and introduce a routine for a healthier lifestyle.
