This September, OmnicomCares is off to Barcelona, Spain. Our next Public Service Day is being held at a school for severely disabled children called Escola d’EE l’Arboç in a place called Mataró, which is a small town northwest of Barcelona. The children range in age from 5 to 16 and are severely disabled physically, some psychologically as well.
In the past year a brand new school has been built and it is there that OmnicomCares is going to weave its magic. Our outdoor projects include planting , laying irrigation, creating an aromatic garden, building picnic benches and installing some fencing. In addition, there is a large patio area which is in direct sunlight, so we are building a large pergola to give some very needed shade. Inside, there are lots of bare white walls both inside and outside screaming for some colour; we will paint murals to help brighten the place up and install new computers. All of our projects are designed especially with the needs of disabled children in mind.
Here are some ‘before’ pictures of the school:
