On December 15, the Pro Dignitate Humana Award was presented. Its laureate this year was the House of St Martin de Porres in Fastovo, Ukraine. On behalf of the laureate, the Award was received from the hands of the Minister of Foreign Affairs Zbigniew Rau by Fr. Jarosław Krawiec, Provincial Vicar of the Dominicans in Ukraine.
On the governmental website, one can read that the House of St. Martin has begun its activity by organizing a modest youth centre, offering care for children with disabilities, preparing meals for the elderly, and building a football pitch.
What is more, the organization is also accountable for helping those who lost their homes during the war in Ukraine. It also got involved in the construction of container houses, while its volunteers are helping to rebuild homes destroyed in Russian attacks.
