13TH ANNUAL AWARD FOR ALTRUISM
     

Every year, on the International Day of Altruism, the SIMI Foundation conducts the prize awarding ceremony of Altruism.

Just weeks earlier, Jovita Godiñez received a phone call from Mexico City. It was C.P. Victor González Torres of the SIMI Foundation, known as "Fundación Simi" in Mexico. Sr. Torres was calling to congratulate Jovita on winning National First Prize for the 13th Annual Award for Altruism in Mexico. On the same day, Jovita was granted a second award — a Silver Medal in the "Anonymous Heroes" — an annual award given by State of Guerrero.

"Mama Jovita" was invited to Mexico City to receive an award for all of her years of hard work and dedication to the protection and development of underprivileged, at-risk children in the state of Guerrero, Mexico. Jovita humbly came up on stage to receive her diploma and thanked all of those, who throughout the years, have helped to make the Marsh Home what it is today - an example of excellence in Child Care in Mexico.
