PANAMA CITY, Panama, Dec. 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Eduardito, the boy who is the symbol of the 20-30 Panama 2014 Telethon, recently toured Mossack Fonseca's main office in Panama. During his visit, all of the staff was impressed by Eduardito's cheerfulness and optimism.
A video accompanying this release is available at http://www.globenewswire.com/newsroom/prs/?pkgid=29490.
Eduardito goes to the Buen Pastor de Canaán School in San Miguelito, where he is an energetic kindergartner who loves his classes. When he was one month old, he was diagnosed with Type B Meningococcemia and, as a result, both of his hands and legs had to be amputated. Despite this tragedy, Eduardito is a happy and eager boy and his determination is an example for all of us.
This year, the 20-30 Telethon is raising funds in order to equip and create new departments at the National Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Institute (PM&RI). There is limited room at the PM&RI, which makes it difficult to attend to the growing number of patients in the child and adult physiotherapy departments. This has limited the PM&RI's acquisition of modern equipment required for such rehabilitation.
The Mossack Fonseca Group (Panama) welcomed Eduardito affectionately and showered him with gifts. The staff also donated to the cause that he represents on behalf of thousands of children.
The Mossack Fonseca Group is proud to sponsor activities that contribute to the welfare of Panamanian children with special needs, as well as activities to support different organizations that share our vision of enhancing and developing our country.
