We should like to inform you that FBB hired Isabela Bertho to be our new Head of Welfare. Bel, as we may call her, is graduated in Social Sciences at Universidade de São Paulo and has a Masters in Sociology at Université de Genève (Switzerland).
She comes from SEFRAS, an NGO that works for the elderly, for children and for other people in vulnerable situations. There she gained experience in designing and monitoring social projects and in networking with other organisations and with the government.
We are very excited to have her on board and we are sure that her experience will be extremely valuable for the new projects we are creating for the cause of the elderly here at the Fundação.
Fernanda, our previous Head of Welfare, had to leave us for personal reasons. She will be missed by all of us and I am sure you will all join me in thanking her for these years of dedication to the work of the Fundação.
