Melania Trump has been getting more and more active as her time as the first lady grows. Just recently, Mrs. Trump enjoyed spending time at the Bambino Gesu Pediatric Hospital in Rome. According to Stephanie Grisham, spokeswoman to the first lady, Trump was greeted by all the students at the same time:
“She went in the children’s [intensive care unit], which was very emotional. She spoke to them in Italian, she signed bandages, and she took lots of selfies.”
Melania must have truly desired to go to this hospital because President Trump wrote a special letter to Pope Francis asking if Mrs. Trump could visit. The President also stressed the point that it was very important to his wife.
The patients came from a variety of nine countries, many of whom Mrs. Trump could speak with the children without a translator thanks to her multilingual abilities. A large number of patients come from the fact that the facility is run by the Catholic Church and gives free health care as well as housing. They now cover roughly 3,500 families.
Melania loved the time and left a note for the children before leaving that read, “Great visiting you! Stay strong & Positive!”
