The Italian branch of AMADE (the World Association of Friends of Children), faithful to its vocation of help to children, has supported the Paediatric Institute Giannina Gaslini in Genoa, by presenting a cheque for €6,000 in favour of the “Children and Families” reception centre established within the hospital.
The cheque was presented in the presence of His Excellency Mr Robert Fillon, Ambassador of Monaco in Italy. The Istituto Giannina Gaslini is a state-of-the-art paediatric hospital that brings together all medical and surgical specialties.
A non-profit establishment with a wide international presence, the institute has nearly 500 hospital beds for children. Its top officials attach great importance to the social aspect of the care of hospitalised children and providing advice and comfort to families.
AMADE was founded in 1963 at the initiative of Princess Grace.
