We won an award!
On 16 October our Member, Diaconia Poland, awarded us “The Good Samaritan 2021” honour in recognition of our merits in the diaconal field.
Eurodiaconia’s Chairperson -Olli Holmstrom from Diakonissalaitos, Finland- collected the statuette, and expressed his gratitude to the organisers: “A very warm thank you, Diakonia Poland. It is very much appreciated by all of us at Eurodiaconia”.
The award was presented during the ecumenical Ubi Caritas Gala held in Warsaw, in which Diaconia Poland expressed its appreciation and gratitude to Eurodiaconia for “an active care for vulnerable people by developing policy papers, influencing current social discussion in Europe and building space for an international cooperation”.
Alongside emphasising Eurodiaconia’s advocacy work for social justice and equality, its activities in the field of social assistance and health care were also highlighted as a platform that allows its members to express their views on current social challenges on a pan-European level.
