The life of evangelical churches and their spiritual leaders has been portrayed in some recent films and series. Can they help us start conversations?
The European Association of Economy and Competitiveness recognises the professional career in oral and dental medicine of Betel Dental Social Clinic, an evangelical project.
The European Association of Economy and Competitiveness (AEDEEC in Spanish) has awarded the European Gold Medal of Merit at Work to Betel, a Christian Spanish Association, in recognition of its professional career in the field of oral and dental medicine.
The AEDEEC is an organization created to promote, develop and recognize the mechanisms of companies that promote good business development within the European framework.
The award ceremony took place on December 14 in a down town hotel in Madrid.
EUROPEAN GOLD MEDAL OF MERIT AT WORK
The Gold Medal for Merit at Work, "recognizes, rewards and celebrates the success of companies with an exemplary record at national and / or European level and practices and initiatives that support the spirit and business awareness".
This award is aimed at professionals from all sectors within the European Union that meet the requirements mentioned above. Companies and professionals who receive this award become a model and benchmark in its sector both nationally and internationally.
Betel has been offering a total quality dental care at affordable prices since 2008, thinking specially in socially disadvantaged people, through its Dental Social Clinic.
In 2015 alone, 8,322 interventions were performed, providing dental services to a total of 2,613 patients. It has a team of highly qualified professionals and first level material.
‘A WELL DONE JOB IS ALWAYS RECOGNISED’
The award was a surprise for Betel. Its leaders not only did no ask for it, but were not aware of being among the candidates to receive it.
Founder and president, Elías Tepper, recalled that when he asked the organisers how was it possible that they received the award, they told him: "When there is a job well done, there are always people who know how to recognize it".
Betel is an NGO founded in 1985 and was built as a social work of the Bethel Church, dedicated to the restoration of lives, with many centres and projects. Its purpose is to help people in social exclusion, through free rehabilitation programs.
