Hermann Gmeiner Award 2000

Dr. José Francisco Gallardo, Honduras

On 17 November 2000 the Hermann Gmeiner Award was presented to Dr. José Francisco Gallardo, a former SOS Children’s Village child from Honduras.

José F. Gallardo was a street-child for several years before he found a new and permanent home at SOS Children’s Village Tegucigalpa in the Honduran capital. There he proved to be a good pupil, and after graduating from high school he went on to study medicine at university.
