Fernando Simón, director of the Coordination Center for Health Alerts and Emergencies of the Ministry of Health, said that it did not seem bad to him that his image was used for merchandising products and made the request if it was “possible to donate a part to an NGO”. And this has been exactly what has happened in the Conquistando Escalones Association.
The website of Cups CopyCup and the cartoonist of the magazine El Jueves, Rubén Fernández, have teamed up to create a mug with a Simón design that represents the most mythical phrases. “From Conquistando Escalones we can only have words of thanks for this initiative in which the full benefit of the sale of the product is destined to the investigation of Limb-girdle Muscular Dystrophy 1F and HIV,” stated the president of the Association, Abraham Guirao. The mugs are already available in our online store and can be purchased in white or in a random color.
Conquistando Escalones continues to underline the importance of investing in medical research, a fact that society as a whole seems “more aware of” as a result of the health crisis that is taking place worldwide as a consequence of the expansion of COVID -19. In this sense, Guirao, has sent a forceful message and has asked that once this crisis is over and we have a vaccine, “we hope that society, but especially public institutions and private investors, learn that medical research is a priority absolute and resources are provided for it ”.
