Salvatore and Christine Ferragamo at Fundación MIR

On Thursday, November 12th, the Fundación MIR was honored to receive Mr. Salvatore Ferragamo and his wife, Christine in the foundation’s schools.

MIR told Casa de Campo Living the children were so excited about their arrival they made little cards to give them as a thank you for their visit. The team from the Fundación showed Mr. and Mrs. Ferragamo their schools, classrooms and teachers, and watched as the prestigious visitors interacted with students, sitting to partake in lessons and help children study.

Mr. Ronald Maidens, Executive Director of the Fundación MIR said: “It was a great experience for me to see the excitement of Mr. Ferragamo and his wife to see the children from our schools answering the questions they had. The children were very grateful for their visit.”

The Fundación MIR, whose motto is, “Education, the gift that keeps on giving”, was able to share with Mr. and Mrs. Ferragamo the work they do daily to continue helping children in need.
