Dr Alganesh Fessaha, President of Gandhi NGO Awarded Two Awards in Separate Occasions: “Ambrogino d’oro golden medal” by the Mayor of Milan as well as National Prize in Rome in Recognition of her Humanitarian Work & Supporting Eritrean and African Refugees.

The ‘Ambrogino d’oro’ is the City of Milan golden honour medal, conferred every year to a small number of Milan citizens, in recognition of extraordinary support to the City, the inhabitants, the culture and the image of Milan in the world.

Translation of the motivation for awarding the 2013 Ambrogino d’oro golden medal to Alganesh Fessaha, by the Mayor and the City authorities in a public ceremony held in Milan on the 7th of December 2013:

Alganesh Fessaha is a Milan citizen of Eritrea origin, citizen of the word in light of the peace ideal guiding her meritorious work in African and Near East countries as President of ‘Gandhi’ NGO.

With same humanitarian spirit of the ‘Giusti della storia’ she puts her own life at risk to free Sub-Saharian refugees mostly from Eritrea, Ethiopia and Sudan, brutally kidnapped and tortured.

She saved hundreds of men, women and children, victims of most cruel human trafficking in the planet.

She delivers schooling projects and professional training and promotes acceptance and integration of refugees in Milan

immediately after the Lampedusa shipwreck tragedy she rescued and supported the survivors, performing also a precious function of liaison with the families in the countries of origin.

    Dr Alganesh thank you for all you have done for our brothers and sisters that are most in need. You are the light in this very dark time in Eritrean history. May you receive the blessings of your work from God. I am a young lady that is very, very proud of the work that you do. May the next Eritrean leader be some one like you, or hopefully YOU. May God continue to protect and help you, Dr Alganesh.

    This is an Award well deserved…Dr. Alganesh has been on the forefront helping people in need for years I have been fortunate enough to visit some of her projects in Ethiopia and I found them to be outstanding.One of her qualities that have made a lasting impression on me is her dedication to the cause and her selfless effort to help those who are in need… and while she is doing that she never strives for publicity .God bless her.
