One of the richest men on the planet announced his final separation on his Twitter account.
Bill Gates, the American mogul and co-founder of Microsoft, announced on social media that he would end his marriage to Melinda Gates after 27 years together.
In a statement he uploaded to his official Twitter account, Computer Intelligence assured that the two would continue to work together at the FoundationFoundation. However, they will no longer maintain an emotional bond as a couple.
After much thought and hard work on our relationship, we have decided to end our marriage. Over the past 27 years, we have raised three wonderful children and created a foundation that works around the world to enable all people to live healthy and productive lives; the announcement began.
Also, in a note signed by both Bill and Melinda, they ask for privacy for themselves and their families as they get used to their new lifestyle.
We believe in this mission, and we will continue to work with the FoundationFoundation. Still, we no longer believe that we can move forward together as a couple in the next phase of our lives. According to the statement, we request space and personal information for our family.
Melinda Ann French was born on August 15, 1964, graduated from Duke University with a degree in computer science and economics and is currently an icon among the women in the technology industry. She is one of the successful people in this field.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (B&MGF or Gates Foundation) was founded in 1994 as the William H. Gates Foundation. However, in 1999, he was baptized under his present name, and in the years that followed, other grounds were added to increase his reach and collaboration.
By January 2000, he had joined the Gates Foundation for Learning and the William H. Gates Foundation. The organization is led by Bill Gates, Melinda Gates, and Warren Buffett. It is also co-directed by William H. Gates Sr. (Bill Gates' father) and Jeff Raikes. Just six years succeeding, the FoundationFoundation was granted the Prince of Asturias Award for International Cooperation.
Initiatives launched in collaboration with the FoundationFoundation include the GAVI Alliance, which seeks to increase children's vaccinations. United Negro College Fund, a college scholarship program, The People's Movement Initiative, promotes and encourages the spread of the malaria vaccine. It also has an agreement with Rotary International, which maintains a constant fight to eradicate polio. Also, in terms of education, it directly supports Hillsburg, Pittsburgh, and Memphis public schools.
The cooperative conduct by the Gate is not limited to foundations; for example, during the pandemic, Bill has made a series of estimates in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic; just on April 25, the founder of Microsoft stated that it expects the levels of the new coronavirus to be significantly reduced by the end of 2022, keeping a proportional relationship with the advance in global vaccination.
In the coming months, I predict that there will be overcrowding of vaccines by developed countries, which will promote a faster acquisition model for less developed countries.
Finally, he remarked that only humanity could adequately prepare for incoming epidemics because man's relationship with nature does not seem to change; creating new viruses that could harm public health can be a threat.
