High temperature in Fez brings children out to swim in dangerous places … and demands for their own swimming pools (video)

With temperatures soaring during the summer, there is an urgent need to provide safe and suitable spaces for children to play and recreate, especially in cities that lack adequate public facilities. The city of Fez, for example, suffers from a lack of affordable public swimming pools, forcing children to seek out potentially dangerous alternatives to swim and play.

High- and middle-income families are able to provide framed summer activities for their children, while children from less fortunate families find themselves deprived of these opportunities. This situation highlights the socio-economic gap and emphasises the importance of providing recreational facilities that are accessible to all segments of society.

The call for children’s playgrounds is not just a call for entertainment, but a necessity to ensure their safety and the development of their social and physical skills. The role of youth and national human development initiatives can play a pivotal role in this context, but the biggest role remains on the shoulders of local communities and relevant ministries to provide these spaces and programmes.

It is imperative that authorities take active steps to address this issue by allocating sufficient budgets and finding innovative solutions to provide safe and affordable swimming pools and play areas. This is not only an investment in infrastructure, but an investment in children’s future, health and well-being.

At the end of the day, children’s safety and a healthy and stimulating environment should be a top priority. Providing playgrounds for children is not only their right, it is the duty of society to ensure their growth and development in a safe and stimulating environment.
