RO 27,000 to treat 30 disabled children
“Funding from Oman LNG will enable the association provide specialist treatment for these children using a renowned reflexology therapist, Lone Sorensen, who will be arriving in Oman in June. Already, she has done the evaluation and the next stage now is the actual treatment,” said Sabah. Reflexology, also known as zone therapy, is a form of alternative medicine that involves the physical act of applying pressure to the feet, hands, or ears with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion.
Aside from the 30 children, another group of 10 parents with children who suffer from ailments will also receive training on how to provide care for their young at home. Other responsible adults and guardians in these homes will also be trained in giving care to the ailing children.
