FORMER Queen Sofia received representatives of the Disabled Association, Amirax, from Rincon de la Victoria, led by head, Mari Angeles Rodriguez, during her visit to Malaga on the occasion of the third International Investigation and Innovation on Neurodegenerative Illnesses Conference.
“During five years we have held fluid communications with the royal household, and have invited her since 2010 to our centre, an invitation that became more important when we were finally able to inaugurate our very own Day-Care Centre last spring,” said the head of the association, who continued: “It was then that we were told that the former Queen would receive us in her next visit to Malaga.” She went on to say that, even though they would have liked the former Queen to visit the centre, they were thrilled with the gesture, one that will boost the morale of all those members of staff and patients who fight every day for a more integrated life for people with disabilities.
The former Queen is said to have received the representatives kindly and to have been very touched by their work, especially when introduced to one of the users of the home, who suffers from Cerebral palsy.
