Fairmont opens its beach for free to children with disabilities

The private beach at ­Fairmont The Palm Dubai, located on Palm Jumeirah, is open for children with disabilities. The children can avail the facilities totally free of cost, thanks to a collaboration between Team Angel Wolf, a non-profit association and Fairmont The Palm.

The children will be taken on a devise specially designed for the purpose. ­It looks like extended deckchairs with a lengthy seat section suspended on a tubular frame. Floatable armrests are also attached to the frame. The straps fitted at either end will help carers to pull them through the water.

The beach will be open for children every Wednesday between 4:30 pm and 5:30 pm. The team also has plans to invite special schools and mainstream schools to experience the beach activities.
