RG: Can design change someone’s life?
MB: Yes, I believe that design can change people’s lives.
Making a place beautiful, homy and cozy, makes people feel relax and secure and that makes all the change in someone state of mind.

RG: How important is a safe home for children?
MB: It’s extremely important to have a safe place for the children to whom we give the therapies they need, but also for their family, to feel that are welcome and it feels like a home and not just a hospital.
This is why we designed the Casa Global Gift thinking on having a Home and not a clinic.
Maria Bravo with ‘Global Gifters’ Vanessa Williams and Emma Bunton
RG: A colour Maria Bravo would choose to paint the interiors of her Casa Global Gift?
MB: We wanted to make it look colorful and happy! To do that we choose to do the walls off white and add colors in the furnitures and all the items to do therapies.
