Activity program for the celebration of the XXV anniversary of the Barceló Foundation.

GREETING

As co-founder of the Barceló Foundation (BF), I want to thank God for inspiring me to create this Foundation and for giving me the privilege of working in it since its inception to present date, trying to make my modest contribution towards a better world .

I think over these 25 years the BF has rigorously fulfilled its objectives, which have been really much more important than we could imagine at first.

We have helped thousands of people to  improve their health, to have access to education and to have options to improve their modest economy and thus, trying to be sensitive to the immense needs, to be fair and unbiased in our decisions, not discriminating anyone, but considering all requests with the best will.

For this we have had the understanding and support of the members of the different Boards of Trustees, the members of the Advisory Council that we have had so far and local partners, who have worked shoulder to shoulder with us in the countries receiving our help.

We have also received personal or financial support from many anonymous people, Foundations and institutions, which has meant a significant help in the development of our tasks.

To each and every one of them, I would like to express my immense gratitude, as well as the Barceló Foundation’s.

From now on, the new generations will take up the baton in the hope that this work will continue for many years to come.

I wish and hope, that they will accept with fear and enthusiasm the challenge of leading the Foundation to brighter and higher goals, more efficiently than we have achieved so far.

I hope they will contribute with the strength and vitality of their youth, the knowledge of their better intellectual preparation, but especially the enthusiasm to help others in need.

I hope and trust that they will be able to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of this Foundation with the satisfaction of duty performed, having contributed to improve the lives of many people and thus of the human race.

Gabriel Barceló Oliver

Co-Founder and Vice president
