As a company awarded is an honor for us to receive the Cross of St. George as it becomes a recognition of the experience of an entity that was created in 1965 at the hands of parents and relatives of people with intellectual disabilities and has been able to last over time for over fifty years and what is more important work to improve the quality of life of people with intellectual disabilities are the true protagonists.
It was not easy to get here, but despite the difficulties and challenges that we face, we will continue working vigorously for the people, defending their rights and ensuring their quality of life without losing the values that motivated and have guided our organization over the last fifty years.
We thank the Government of Catalonia has awarded us this award so precious.
