Melaine Trump during her visit to Rome, visited the children hospital there.
According to her:
“My visit to Bambino Gesu Children’s Hospital today was very moving. To spend time speaking to and coloring with children who have such a positive spirit despite illness was an amazing gift,” Melania said in a statement. “The time I spent with the little ones in the Intensive Care Unit is something I will never forget, and I will pray for each of them daily. I want to thank the doctors, nurses and staff of the hospital, who all do such beautiful and critical work.”
During her visit, Melania met a little boy, who had been waiting for a heart transplant. Hours after leaving Rome for the next leg of her international trip, the former model learned that the patient would be receiving his transplant. “Upon landing in Belgium, I learned a young boy and his family who had been waiting for a heart transplant was informed that the hospital has found a donor,” the first lady stated. “I read a book and held hands with this special little one just a few hours ago, and now my own heart is filled with joy over this news.”
Following her trip to Rome, the president and his stylish wife traveled to Belgium, where they were welcomed by King Philippe and Queen Mathilde to the royal palace. The American couple are currently in Belgium for a two-day visit for the NATO summit. On Thursday, Melania visited another hospital — Queen Fabiola University Hospital — in Brussels, where she toured the facilities and made paper flowers with patients.
