jmnews_e0DR. MARIA LUISA FIGUEROA

maria luisaIt is with great sorry that we acknowledge the passing of Dr. María Luisa Figueroa, Academic Adviser of our agency. Ms. Figueroa was an active and passionate person involved in all themes related to International Education. She was in charge of the International Office of Student Exchange at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaiso  (1995-2002) and of the International Office at Universidad de Viña del Mar (2002-2010).

She was born in Gorlitz, Spain, in 1934. Due to the Civil War in Spain, her family moved to France. Unfortunately, France became part of The European theatre of World War in 1939.

Her arrival to Chile / Pablo Neruda: “The noblest mission I have ever undertaken”

Winnipeg was a French  steamer notable for arriving at Valparaíso, Chile, on 3 September 1939, with 2,200 Spanish immigrants aboard. The refugees were fleeing Spain after Franco’s victory in the Spanish Civil War (1936–39). The Chilean President Pedro Aguirre Cerda had named the poet Pablo Neruda Special Consul in Paris for Immigration, and he was in charge with what he called “the noblest mission I have ever undertaken”: shipping the Spanish refugees, who had been housed by the French government in internment camps, to Chile.

jmnews_e0DONATE FOR A CAUSE

GoAbroad-CHILE cordially invites you to participate as donor for Fundacion Pro Inclusion Rayos de Sol:

Sin título

“Hi, my name is Paola but my family and friends call me “Pollito” because my dad nicknamed that way. When he first saw me he said that I looked like a little chicken. (Unofortunately, my daddy passed away some years ago)

I do not attend a formal school (because of my age…I am not as young as I look) …nor work. The only option I have to socialize with my friends is when we attend our Workshop “Rayos de Sol”. From Monday to Friday we met and develop several activities and have a good time. Since we are not a subsidied organization, there are costs our parents have to assume. Nevertheless, there are new activities we would like to develop and, at the same time, unforeseen situations that demand more income to make our institution sustainable. We need the support of our friends to continue.” More information HERE.
