D. Carlos Susías, president of EAPN-Spain, received last March 9, from Her Majesty Queen Sofia, the Golden Cross of the Civil Order of Social Solidarity 2008, at the Palacio de la Zarzuela de Madrid.
This award recognizes the quality of EAPN-Spain’s work in fighting poverty and exclusion and in promoting participation of people at social risk. After receiving the award, the president of EAPN Spain noted “this medal should be an incentive to introduce structural and long-term measures in order to reduce current poverty levels”.
The Minister of Education, Social Policy and Sport, Mercedes Cabrera, highlighted the work of the winners, noting that “they have contributed in a fundamental way, and from each of its areas of work, to progress and to social cohesion in Spain.”
