Description: MASNATURA works to promote, through entertainment activities, the integral development of people with disabilities (especially children and young people) and to provide respite time for their families. The absence of autonomy, associated with disability, means an overload of work for family members. These families are faced with a time to rest or to devote to their other children. MASNATUR's activities provide them with this respite space during all of the projects that the organisation is involved in. Another element of inclusion provided by MASNATUR is the possibility of sharing these activities with other people and being enriched by the group. Many people with disabilities, especially children and young people, did not enjoy leisure outside their family or school environment.
