Honduran Government Honors Spain’s “Carlos III” Foundation President

The Honduran Embassy in Spain and Ambassador Leila Odeh de Scott have granted the Orden de Morazán award to Carlos Escudero de Burón, President of the Carlos III Foundation, for his efforts to obtain humanitarian and financial aid for the victims of Hurricane Mitch.

As part of a series of initiatives aimed at raising funds for victims in both Honduras and Nicaragua, Escudero de Burón organized a Spanish soccer classic between the Real Madrid and Atletico de Madrid teams at the Santiago Barnabeu Stadium in Madrid.

At the award ceremony, Ambassador Aníbal Quiñónez thanked Escudero de Burón in the name of the people and the government of Honduras for the valuable efforts the Foundation has made over the last 10 years.

The honoree, clearly moved by the honor, explained that seeing the victims of the hurricane compelled him to take action, mobilizing international aid in order to relieve the numerous human and material losses caused by the tragedy.

The award ceremony was held at the Honduran Embassy in Spain before an audience of business leaders, members of the diplomatic corps, and Spanish government officials.
