Pilar’s acceptance speech…
Good evening everyone. It is a true honor to receive this Women Together Award on behalf of NPHI (Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos International) advocating for children’s wellbeing.
In addition to what we show in the video, we are working on a range of health projects focusing on gender equality, serving the community and sustainable practices. We strive to provide the best educational opportunities, starting with early education, to develop their highest potential as human beings.
It is with gratitude I want to thank my outstanding team. Part of it is present in the room Dr. Corinna and Marta and Aya from finances department.
My family, my husband and children, always supporting and encouraging to fulfill my dream and pursue my passion.
And to my mentor and ethical consultant, Fr. Rick Frechette, CP, DO, a priest and doctor for exemplifying life of compassion and giving back the human dignity to the poorest of the poor in the slums of Haiti.
Finally to the Aid for Aids foundation, Walkabout Foundation and Dream Project for their partnership.
Below is the video that Dr. Pilar showed before she received her award.
