1-Painting Exhibition/Sale - Le Gray Hotel - May 2018
Despite the economic difficulties affecting the country in general and SESOBEL in particular, SESOBEL has helped in 2017 alone, more than 1200 children and youth with motor or intellectual handicap or with autism from birth to adult age.
April, being the month for Autism Awareness, SESOBEL, in collaboration with Le Gray Hotel, organised an exhibition/sale of the amazing paintings done by the children in our autism program.
The paintings are of different sizes, and many of them up to 2mx2m.
About 20 paintings were sold and the spark in the eyes of the numerous visitors was very encouraging to our kids, their parents and their teachers to keep on !!!!
Their brush strokes are their personal contribution to help SESOBEL gather some of the much needed funds to continue the construction work of the new Autism Center.
These children and youth have multiple talents. They follow continuing training in different fields. One of their favorite activities is painting. It is, for them, a therapy, a way of communication and expression that allows them to put their feelings on canvas!
As for the construction in progress of the Autism Center, some workshops, classes, refectory, kitchen, bedrooms,…remain to be sponsored and finished.

At SESOBEL we are always struggling to give the children the best care we can with a lot of love and dedication !!
2-LAUNCHING THE HYDROTHERAPY UNIT- SEPTEMBER 2017
Despite the economic difficulties affecting the country in general and SESOBEL in particular, and Thanks to the generosity of a friend of SESOBEL, our dream came true:
Children with autism, motor, and / or intellectual disability have sensory-motor impairments that block their development. The aquatic environment provides them with relaxation & security . As the body is lighter in the water, the movements are increased. On the other hand, in the water the movement undergoes resistance which improves strength, energy and endurance. Children are motivated while having fun.
In addition to its importance for SESOBEL's children and youth, this hydrotherapy unit is open to the public in the afternoons as a source of self-financing for people with neurological diseases, rheumatological diseases and orthopedic diseases.
