The NPO Pinocchio organizes yearly a crenotherapy camp in Spa for burned children aged between 5 and 16.
The selection is made on the basis of various parameters:
- the level of seriousness of burns
- the degree of the burns
- the recovery phase (the crenotherapy is most efficient when cicatrisation is still in its active phase)
- the socio-economic situation
- the need to provide care
- both for French and Dutch speaking children
The head physician of the Centre for burned children determines whether the child needs crenotherapy.
