Queen Silvia attended today the last board meeting in H.M. Queen Silvia's Foundation Care About the Children. The Foundation was officially ended on 31 December 2023. This meeting was a kind of farewell to the Foundation.

At a book there is summary of the Foundation's 10 year operation. This writing was compiled in the fall of 2023, and was presented to all major donors at a closing event at the Palace on November 16, 2023. Now it is for everyone else to see and have a look at the foundation’s fantastic journey.
Care about the Children
Queen Silvia attended yesterday at the Royal Palace the board meeting of Sällskapet till Arbetsflitens befrämjande (The Society for Promoting of Diligence).
Queen Silvia came to visit to cut the ribbon and inaugurate the outdoor environment at the new retirement home Tullgatan 40 in Borgholm. It was a much appreciated visit.
"So fun that the Queen is here. It's so nice to hear your voice," said Lina Wiström, who had just moved into Tullgatan 40 when the Queen came to shake everyone's hand on the way to cut the ribbon.
"It is fantastic to be here and exciting to see how you are doing," replied the Queen.
The queen cut the ribbon and also inaugurated by playing a boules match against social manager Anna Hasselbom Trofast.
"Now I'm going to do something I've never done before," said the Queen before she threw the first ball.
At the end of the Queen's visit, Mayor Ilko Corkovic, asks if we can name the park Queen Silvia's park.
"If everyone agrees to it and thinks it's a good idea here at the residence, then I want it and then I want to come here and be part of it again. This was one of the best visits I've made," said the Queen.
