A carpet made of more than 15,000 red tulips will be exhibited, from Friday until Sunday, in front of the National Bank headquarters, marking the debut of the information and education campaign “The Garden with Hopes,” devoted to the fight against Parkinson’s disease.
According to a release sent to Agepres, the flower carpet, to cover a 50 sq m perimeter, will be exhibited in the Lipscani-Smardan pedestrian area, in front of the National Bank of Romania’s headquarters downtown.
More than 72,000 Romanians suffer from the Parkinson’s disease, which is the second degenerative neurological disease at national level. Most often, the disease occurs at around 50-70 years old, but increasingly more people in their 40s were discovered to have the symptoms in the latest years, shows the release.
The campaign is organized by the Parkinson Disease Association, in partnership with the Romanian Neurological Society.
