We Care for Humanity (WCH) is gearing up again for the annual celebration of the Global Officials of Dignity (G.O.D.) Awards which is now on its 4th year. Each year, they pick the finest humanitarians in different sectors of the society to honor at the very place which fosters unity and peace, the United Nations. "We are very honored that this year's Latin Woman of the Year Awards is accepted by Hon. Rosalia Arteaga. We can't think of anyone from the Latin American region more deserving of the award. Her dedication to serving humanity even after her terms as President and Vice President of Ecuador should be recognized for other women-in-power to follow and make a great example." said, Princess Maria Amor, founder of WCH and creator of the GOD Awards.
