|Barcelona, 14 November 2022|
Today, 14 November, in Barcelona, Vincenzo Bassi, president of the Federation of Catholic Family Associations of Europe (FAFCE), will receive the Luchador por la Familia (“Fighter for the Family”) international award from the Catalunya Family Platform.
This is the seventh edition of the award, which had taken place each year and was in recent years interrupted by the pandemic.
The “Fighter for the Family” award was created to recognize those people who, as the name of the award itself indicates, work in favour of the Family in every area that affects it, from economic and social policies to its very recognition as the most fundamental institution of society.
The international award will go to Vincenzo Bassi while the national award will be given to Jaime Mayor Oreja, former minister of the Spanish Government and current president of the European Federation One of Us.
The award ceremony will take place on November 14 during a Conference on Natality and Family Policies at the Abat Oliba CEU University in Barcelona.
