Spanish Organization for the Blind (ONCE)

Prince of Asturias Award for Concord 2013

Statement by ONCE chairman Miguel Carballeda, on the conferral of the 2013 Prince of Asturias Award for Concord:

"Being blind and disabled, we are proud to achieve the highest possible accolade, which is no easy feat. It constitutes the recognition of effort, pushing back the limits and human capability. It is possibly the Award to be shared the most by Spanish society, because it is that society which has managed to achieve the best and largest organization of blind people in the world for our country. We dedicate it to all those who approach us every day to share hopes and to so many organizations, both large and small, from the world of disability which do an outstanding job on a daily basis. It is a triumph for organised civil society. Lots of concord and many thanks."

Miguel Carballeda
Madrid, 4th September 2013
