The support of the Tomasevich family has been fundamental in sustaining our hospital and building our headquarters in the city of Mendoza," said Dr. Albino during the talk.

At the close of the event, Federico Tomasevich invited all present to join in these projects. "We have been working with CONIN for 20 years to eradicate child malnutrition.

Visit to the Conin Foundation

Federico toured the facilities of the "Mother Teresa of Calcutta" Centre for the Recovery of Malnourished Infants and the "El Plumerillo" Centre for the Prevention of Child Desnutrition and Human Promotion, both located in Las Heras.

"It is a pleasure to be able to visit with Dr. Albino the facilities of the CONIN Foundation, which for many years we have been helping with PUENTE and especially the Doctor in a cause that we believe is extremely noble and necessary. We see the effort, dedication and absolute dedication of all the professionals who work at the Foundation to achieve the objectives," said Tomasevich.

"Unfortunately, in Argentina a great effort has to be made in this task, so we will keep helping the Doctor and the Foundation", he added and invited those who can to join and help the Foundation.

For his part, Abel Albino expressed his joy for Federico's visit, which he described as something that "pleases his soul". "It's not the first time the Tomasevich family has helped us. Fourteen years ago, they were the ones who gave us the funds to put back in track this hospital. They heard me talking on a radio program a Friday morning, that afternoon they contacted me and the next day I had the money to start the work. And I assure you, they didn't know me”, recalled the professional.

He also mentioned that for ten years in a row, PUENTE gave them the funds to celebrate CONIN's annual celebration and also to build the headquarters on 25 de Mayo Street.
