National Dignitary Medal of Honor for CEMADEF

After 12 years of service, the echo of CEMADEF has reached the highest peak of the Democratic Republic of Congo. January 16, 2019, the commemoration date of the national hero Laurent Désiré Kabila, has also become a memorable date for CEMADEF. On this date, the General Director of CEMADEF, Fanny Binen Ukey, was honored with the National Dignitary medal for her contribution to the fight against poverty in the province of Ituri. Her words were the following: 

“First of all, allow me to thank God for this memorable day in my life and for CEMADEF. I dedicate this medal to all the women of Ituri in general and to all the courageous women of CEMADEF in particular. It is thanks to them that we were able to achieve the results that are being talked about CEMADEF today. I also dedicate this medal to all our donors and partners represented by the Association d’Appui aux femmes de l’Ituri (ASSAFI), for their continuous support for these last 12 years. May everyone find here our feelings of gratitude.”
