On October 29, 2012, our Director and Founder, Paul Lorilla, received the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal to honour his significant contributions, achievements and dedication to improve the lives of children, families and communities through the Isa Mundo Foundation. Paul accepted the award on behalf of the volunteers and supporters of the Foundation and stated that 'this is more than just an individual award, there are countless volunteers, funders and other not for profit organizations that make our projects successful, so this medal is to recognize and thank them as well for their passion to help those less fortunate. I am honored to accept this for the Isa Mundo Foundation family'.
The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal is a new commemorative medal to mark the 2012 celebrations of the 60th Anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the Throne as Queen of Canada. This year, 60,000 deserving Canadians will be recognized for their outstanding service to community and for helping make Canada what it is today.
