H.R.H. the Princess of Hanover visits Gaslini Children's Hospital in Genoa

On Friday 14 February, the President of AMADE Mondiale visited Genoa to present the Giannina Gaslini Children's Hospital with state-of-the-art laser equipment.

Operational since 1938, the Gaslini Institute aims to provide children with the best possible care using the most advanced technology. Its services encompass treatment, scientific research and surgery.

Welcomed by its CEO, Professor Vincenzo Lorenzelli and the President of AMADE Italy, Prince Pallavicino, Her Royal Highness was accompanied by Mr Jérôme Froissart, Secretary General of AMADE Mondiale, Mr Pieter Bogaardt and Mrs Caroline Repin, Members of the Board of Directors and Mr Claudio Senzioni, Secretary General of AMADE Italy together with H.E. Mr Robert Fillon, Ambassador of Monaco to Italy.

The President of AMADE Mondiale visited the various hospital departments and met several hospitalised children along with members of the medical staff, before officially presenting the institute with a new piece of dermatological laser equipment. This state-of-the-art device will be used for specialist interventions in dermatologic surgery, particularly for treating skin diseases, scars, vascular tumours and skin remodelling.

Founded by Senator Gerolamo Gaslini as a tribute to his daughter who died in childhood aged just 12, today the hospital is one of Europe's top establishments, combining experience, expertise and the desire to remain at the forefront of medical technology. It takes in over 17,000 patients a year and operates on more than 2,000 children annually.

This device, worth 50,000 euros, has been acquired following an awareness campaign conducted by AMADE Italy over several weeks.

At the end of the day, the Princes of Hanover took part in a charity event to talk with the principal partners and generous supporters of this campaign.

We should remember that AMADE's mission is to protect the most vulnerable children against violence, exploitation and abuse, to encourage children to thrive by contributing to access to education and health and to support change through lobbying.
