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.
An incredible 12-month time lapse video showing the creation of Monaco’s mammoth land extension project has just been released.
Monaco has a new bailiff, or huissier as known locally, who was sworn in earlier this week.
General crime rates in the Principality dropped by a significant 16% between the years 2016 and 2019, and street crime by an impressive 52%.
As part of the newly approved Palais Honoria housing project, a gantry will be installed above Boulevard de Belgique, creating temporary traffic impediments in the area.
Kelly Rutherford, the American actress who fought a long and costly battle for the custody of her two Monaco-based children, has paid $15,000 to regain rights to her residual income from the Gossip Girl series in which she starred. She declared bankruptcy in 2013 after paying out $1.5 million in legal fees in a tug-of-war with ex-husband German entrepreneur Daniel Giersch, a Monaco resident.
Her creditors have earned about $174,000 over the last three years. Rutherford, 47, has a nine-year old son, Hermes, and a younger daughter, Helena, with Giersch. The actress was still pregnant with Helena when she divorced her husband. The custody battle was particularly vicious and at one point Rutherford kept the two children in the US at the end of the summer after they were supposed to return to their father in the Principality.
A judge in Monaco granted Girsch custody of the children in a court hearing late last year and although Rutherford can visit the children in Monaco she is not allowed to take them to the US.
