Maira Luisa Limon Promotora Legacy Award

The Visión y Compromiso “Maria Luisa Limón Legacy Award” was established in the memory of Maria Luisa Limon who recently passed away. Maria Luisa showed extraordinary passion and dedication, who went the extra mile to serve her community, and who built the bridges needed to move the work of promotores and the Promotor Movement forward in all places. The success of Visión y Compromiso is due, in large part, to the perseverance and commitment of all promotores who embody these qualities. It is with gratitude that we thank you for your commitment to creating una vida digna y sana for our community.
