Water became a friend for life for many children!

25.03.2018

On the last Sunday of March, for the eleventh time, the children of Estonian shelters and substitute homes could take a fun trip to the water park of Tallink Spa and Conference Hotel on its anniversary with the support of the non-profit association SEB Heategevusfond. In addition to swimming in the pools, water games and relaxing in the sauna, the children were also taught about water safety and diving.

Children could take part in competitions and relax in the sauna. Swimming in the outdoor pool for a change was a challenge in itself. A diving course with full equipment was taught with two instructors. Many boys decided that it would be a fun hobby to have in the future. By diving, several children overcame their fear of the water and became friends with it instead. It is, after all, well known that this friendship will last for a whole lifetime!

The anaesthesiologist Piret Hermanson taught the families what to do when someone is drowning. The children listened carefully. Everyone got to try mouth-to-mouth breathing and learnt how to help another person when an accident had happened to them. Everyone listened carefully to remember it all. Now they know a bit more about how to save a life.

Having fun in the water gave the children much positivity. After the water party they shared their good spirits and powerful emotions with others. At the end of the day the children were not tired at all, but full of energy, with a content look in their eyes and lightness in their soul. They did get to have fun in the water all day, play ball and meet other children. Quite a few of the children drew a palm tree and sun when thinking back to the spa day – the water party was like a tropical holiday abroad.
