Latin America – Jesuit institutions awarded for the defense of human rights

Radio Progreso and ERIC, Jesuit institutions in Honduras, have received an award in a Festival of Cinema and Human Rights in Barcelona. This year the Festival focused on Honduras, one of the most dangerous countries for journalists and human rights activists. On the other hand, a Mexican Centre for philanthropy has awarded Centro Prodh, a Mexican Jesuit NGO, for the work of promotion and defense of human rights of the most vulnerable: women, indigenous, farmers, migrants, human rights activists and victims of social repression.
