METAdrasi was honoured with the “Models of Excellence 2017” Award!

On Thursday, 23rd of November 2017, during a ceremony in the Old Parliament Hall, METAdrasi was honoured with the award “Models of Excellence 2017” of the Citizen’s Movement, in recognition of our work and social contribution. METAdrasi’s president Lora Pappa received the award from the President of the Hellenic Republic Prokopis Pavlopoulos.

Ms Pappa, after thanking the Citizen’s Movement and the award’s committee, she shared with the audience the words of one of the organization’s volunteers:

“I want to thank METAdrasi for giving me the opportunity to do something meaningful in my life, to feel that I am useful, that I can contribute and bring a change to this world for the better. METAdrasi is food for the soul, it is an experience that changed my life.”

Respectively, she mentioned the phrase of the famous refugee mathematician, Einstein: “The true value of a human being is determined primarily by the measure and the sense in which he has attained to liberation from the self.”

Finally, Ms Pappa said that this distinction will “give strength to the hundreds of METAdrasi’s team members, that daily and under adverse circumstances are doing their best, in order to help the fellow being, irrespectively of nationality, colour, sex, age or religion.”

METAdrasi’s team gave, as always, a dynamic presence! All local groups throughout Greece watched the live broadcast and shared the joy of this honourable recognition of their hard and effective work! Thank you all for your support!
