El evento de Sofía de Wessex sobre la ceguera dejó una huella importante en la familia real británica. La nuera favorita de la reina Isabel asistió a un compromiso que hizo historia por ser la primera integrante de la Casa Windsor en posar en vivo mientras realizaban una escultura.

La esposa del príncipe Eduardo marca una agenda plagada de compromisos oficiales y desde el Palacio de Buckingham le dan más notoriedad desde la renuncia de los duques de Sussex y el escándalo del duque de York que lo alejó de sus deberes con la monarquía.

Today The Countess of Wessex visited Thames Valley Air Ambulance to help launch their 21st anniversary celebrations. HRH is Patron of @tvairambulance. Next week marks National Air Ambulance Week, which recognises the vital lifesaving work of the Thames Valley Air Ambulance and the 20 other services in the UK. 📅 Providing emergency critical care 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. 🏥Approx 70 patients a day receive treatment via an air ambulance service. 🚁On average 2 air ambulances are in the air at any given time in the UK. The Countess met critical care paramedics, Hannah and Neil, Doctor James, an Emergency Consultant at John Radcliff Hospital as well as the Air Ambulance, and Pilot Dave who has previously served in @royalairforce The Countess also sat down with former patients of @tvairambulance, including Charlotte who was involved in a serious road traffic collision in 2013 which left her with life-threatening injuries. The care she received that day from the air ambulance inspired her to change her career and this year, she became a fully qualified paramedic 👏 #AAW2020 #BecauseEverySecondCounts

Evento de Sofía de Wessex sobre la ceguera

El reciente compromiso de la condesa de Wessex deja en evidencia las mejores intenciones de la nuera de la reina Isabel por causas con las que se siente identificada.

La hija de la condesa, Lady Louisa, nació con exotropía, un trastorno de la visión caracterizado por una divergencia de las líneas de la mirada. El pasado 2006, la nieta de la reina Isabel se sometió a una intervención para corregir el problema pero tres años después la anomalía regresó. En ese momento los padres de la joven, que ahora tiene 16 años, decidieron que su hija no volvería a pasar por cirugía.

Para el evento de la organización Vision Foundation que ayuda a las personas ciegas y con discapacidad visual acceder al arte, la condesa posó para Frances Segelman, la escultora de la realeza y las celebridades, en su estudio de Londres durante dos horas mientras creaba un busto de Sofía.

Informaron que la escultura brindará la oportunidad de conocer el físico de la condesa a las personas ciegas.

“Gracias a Frances por esculpir mi rostro hoy. Esta escultura, y los rostros de muchos otros, permitirá ver a invidentes a través del tacto y así imaginar más vívidamente su mundo”. Dijo Sofía.

El busto terminado se dará a conocer en 2021 para conmemorar el año del centenario de la organización benéfica.

The Countess of Wessex sat for a sculpture designed for blind and partially sighted people as part of a special event yesterday for @vision_fdn, a charity which Her Royal Highness has been Patron of since 2003. . The Countess joined sculptor Frances Segelman at her London studio for the unique socially distanced sculpting, which was live streamed to a virtual audience of charity supporters and guests. . Sculpture is one of the most accessible forms of art due to its tactile nature. For a visually impaired person, touching a sculpture can bring the piece to life in more ways than an audio description. . Once completed, the finished bust will be cast in bronze and will provide an opportunity for blind and partially sighted people to know The Countess of Wessex’s likeness – part of the Vision Foundation’s effort to help blind and partially sighted people access art in a meaningful way. The bust will be unveiled during the charity’s centenary year in 2021. . During the two-hour sculpting, Vision Foundation advocates for the charity and members of the sight loss community spoke to the virtual audience about the work of the charity, and how blind and partially sighted people have been affected by COVID-19, lockdown and social distancing measures. The Coronavirus pandemic has had a profound impact on the independence of blind and partially sighted people with daily tasks being made more challenging, and employment prospects being worsened. Social distancing without sight is difficult and issues of social exclusion, isolation and anxiety are exacerbated by the COVID-19 crisis. . The Vision Foundation aims to share the experiences of visually impaired people to help increase public understanding and ensure London is accessible for all. . The Countess is passionate about the issue of sight loss and preventing avoidable blindness both in the UK and around the world.
