Actor and model Priyanka Chopra has been honoured with this year’s Mother Teresa Memorial award for social justice.
Priyanka was invited by the Harmony Foundation to get the award for lending her support and contribution towards social causes, such as her recent visit to Syria, where she interacted with refugee children. Her mother Madhu Chopra, received the award on her behalf.
Madhu Chopra said,
“I humbly accept the award on her behalf. As a mother, I am immensely proud to have a child who is so compassionate and has so much kindness in her. She exemplifies the fact the more you give the more you get. Even as a child, she was influenced by Mother Teresa and has been supporting Prem Niwas in Bareilly.”
“It is justifiable for her to receive this honourable award and I am immensely proud of her. I’m thankful and I’m sure she is humbled that her efforts have been recognised by the foundation that believes in helping the needy and supporting the deprived and raising funds for those who are impoverished,” she added.
