Spanish Queen Letizia today attended an act marking the World Rare Disease Day at the Headquarters of the Fundación Mútua Madrileña in Madrid. World Rare Diseases Day is celebrated within the framework of the Federation’s campaign ‘Symptoms of hope’ with which it seeks to position the impact of the current health crisis on the community as well as the lessons learned in the last year.
The event began with a video tribute to the associative movement presented in the auditorium by Carmen Cortés, spokesperson and coordinator of the platform “We continue to live” for the victims of Toxic Oil Syndrome.
Speaking at the event, Queen Letizia said, “A year ago, those who knew the most about resilience, how to work together, patience, confinement, perseverance, hope, also pain, also how to face problems, began to teach us a lesson. In the last twelve months, each and every one of you has been, even more, an example and a reference of dignity, courage, and strength. If the pandemic has made something clear, it is the humanization of health and disease, the awareness and awareness that we are vulnerable. You have also taught us a lot about vulnerability and commitment.”
The event also held a “Panel of experts: lessons from the pandemic” and, as every year, FEDER has delivered its annual Recognitions, which assess projects and initiatives that institutions in the public and private spheres put in place in favor of the rights of families with rare pathologies.
For the event, Queen Letizia of Spain chose a monochrome look. Upon arrival, Queen Letizia had her black Carolina Herrera wool Cape sleeve coat with maxi buttons draped on her shoulders in classic Letizia style.
Letizia teamed up her look with black and white Magrit pumps and carried Felipe Varela Chevron Quilted Envelope Clutch.
Her Diamond Bezel studs, from which her Australian Pearl earrings usually hang, finished the classic style.
And Karen Hallam’s Signature ring was present as always.
