On 14th April, at the award ceremony held at the John Paul II Collection Museum in Warsaw, the Confidence Awards Jury handed out the "Golden OTIS 2011" statues to the laureates of the 8th edition of the Confidence Awards.
The winners included a group of Georgian doctors and social workers - Tina Beruchashvili, the leader of the post-mastectomy women's movement in Georgia, and Dr. Nargizi Lebanidze and Prof. Rema Gvamichava, who promote breast cancer prevention among Georgian women. The 6th International Confidence Award "Golden OTIS 2011" was awarded in recognition for their efforts to promote this topic among Georgian society. The Award was presented by the Under-Secretary of State of the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mr Krzysztof Stanowski.
It is worth noting that initiatives relating to the post-mastectomy rehabilitation of women are supported in Georgia by Polish institutions in the framework of the Polish development co-operation programme. This is especially needed in a country where there exist major problems with the provision of basic health care.
