Wheelchair Festival Disabled Czech Republic

Mundo Younido contributed a donation to OPS Assistance in Prague (Czech Republic).
This support has been directly used for a festival for disabled people: a music festival in a parque where all people could enjoy the day with assistance around.
In a city like Prague with high streets, many steps it’s quite a challenge to move with a wheelchair.
With activities like this OPS offers nice activities where disabled people fully can enjoy themselves and can be free without worry.
