The president of the Argentine Banco Provincia foundation, Karina Rabolini, signed on Friday at the Embassy of Argentina in the United Kingdom a cooperation agreement with “Walkabout Foundation”, a non-profit organization that focuses on funding research to find a cure for paralysis and donating wheelchairs to people in need around the world.

 “We are grateful to Ambassador Alicia Castro for being our hostess for the signing of an agreement that will help many Argentines” said Rabolini, accompanied by Ambassador Castro, the manager of the Banco Provincia Foundation, Soledad Peralta, and the founder of 'Walkabout', Carolina Gonzalez-Bunster.

“It is a pleasure and an honour to receive this delegation of Banco Provincia. To work for an agreement that has to do with solidarity and equality is very important” Castro stated.

“This is a message of dialogue and solidarity that transcends borders,” added the Argentine diplomat.

Following the signature, Ambassador Castro hosted a lunch for the delegation at the Official Residence.

The Banco Provincia Foundation is a development tool that seeks the growth of different sectors of the province of Buenos Aires through the promotion of social inclusion activities in the fields of education, training and research in science, technology, art and culture.

Karina Rabolini could become Argentina's First Lady as of next December if her husband, and governor of the province of Buenos Aires, Daniel Scioli, wins the coming presidential election next October. Scioli is the incumbent candidate, virtually handpicked by president Cristina Fernandez.

    Two second rate argies here then.

    Scioli: TMBOA latest 'toy boy'?

    To be the first lady of the K's, you first have to be A LADY! A bit like finding a needle in a haystack methinks.

    Just because of this action I will not vote for Scioli.

    I find it treasonous they get involved with an entity of Argentina's only existential enemy, the United Kingdom.

    Very poor decision from this woman.

    There should be no solidarity with the United Kingdom. No cooperation.

    In the second pic, the good lady is holding a copy of “Malvinas Matters”. Perhaps it's a cure for intellectual paralysis she's after?

    Tobi, here's an idea for you: Why don't you start your own “Whatabout Foundation”, dedicated to the introduction of irrelevancy into any discussion of anything?
