Maribel Nadal, sister of Rafael Nadal and daughter of Ana María Parera, president of the Foundation, has been in charge of attending the event and collecting the award on behalf of the entity.
Her Majesty the Queen has highlighted that "civil society in our country is strong, supportive, powerful in many areas: assistance, attention, accompaniment, defense of people who do not have recognized rights, or are being violated, or are in a situation of helplessness, vulnerability, loneliness, suffering”.

If there is something that makes me get up every day with enthusiasm, it is the ability of our work to impact the lives of many people. You help us to multiply that impact, your work is a source of inspiration”.
