The 2014 Gabriela Mistral Foundation Humanitarian Award Dinner with Isabel Allende

The evening will include a conversation between Isabel Allende and Democracy Now! host and executive producer Amy Goodman.

The Gabriela Mistral Foundation has the pleasure of announcing the 2014 Humanitarian Award Dinner which will be held on Wednesday, April 16, 2014 at the New York Athletic Club in New York City. This years’s honoree, Ms. Isabel Allende, author of over twenty books that have been translated into more than thirty languages and sold over sixty million copies., is being recognized for her great humanitarian work on behalf of the women of Chile and the world as founder of the Isabel Allende Foundation.

Following the death of her daughter Paula, and in her honor, the Isabel Allende Foundation was founded in 1996, dedicated to the protection and empowerment of women and children worldwide. Paula was only twenty-eight years old when she died, a graceful and spiritual young woman, the light of her family who cared deeply for others. When in doubt her motto was: What is the most generous thing to do? The foundation, based on her ideals of service and compassion, was created to continue her work. Ms. Allende remarks: “My foundation is guided by a vision of a world in which women have achieved social and economic justice. It is only a drop of water in the vast desert of human need.”

The Gabriela Mistral Foundation will also recognize International Surgical Medical Support for their humanitarian work on behalf of people with medical needs.
