Devi Mohan – Award 2023

ACT President Devi Mohan Awarded Most Compassionate Woman of 21st Century

The Most Successful Entrepreneur of 21st Century Association, which has been awarding and recognizing the best of the best in various areas of life and work in Serbia and beyond, awarded our ACT Global President, Devi Mohan, with the prestigious “Most Compassionate Woman of 21st Century’ award in the category of humanitarian work.

Devi was nominated for this award by Dr. Olja Lopushansky who lives in Amsterdam and has won this award in a different category two years earlier.

As per the standard procedure, the Association then conducted a thorough research about Devi and, through a survey and popular vote, this award was given to Devi as a representative of hundreds of most dedicated, supremely selfless volunteers of ACT Foundation active in 29 countries.

In Devi’s words: “This indeed was a real ‘red carpet experience’ in Belgrade, Serbia.

I dedicate this award to all ACT Foundation volunteers, all selfless mothers serving from the background – as we expand our hearts and horizons, let us celebrate selflessness and manifest a true balance of masculine and feminine contribution in the world.

As a woman I therefore also dedicate this award to my beloved Mohanji, the Founder of ACT and my true support and inspiration, visible and invisible.

This was a truly unique experience. 20 people (men and women) from different walks of life (artists, actors, singers, sportsmen, musicians, traditional fashion designers, business entrepreneurs, holistic practitioners, philantropists…) gathered at the glamorous Imperial Hall in Belgrade on 15 Dec 2023 to receive this extraordinary award.

This was a beautiful culmination of ACT Foundation’s 20th anniversary celebration, which also took place in Serbia one month earlier.

Life is a miracle! There are no limits.”

ACT 4 Ukraine News

ACT 4 UKRAINE 
 

At the times of crisis, TEAMWORK is the key! March 10th 2022 was a historic day on which Mohanji Foundation teams from the entire Balkan region joined hands as one ’Mohanji Balkans team’ and together with ACT Serbia, ACT Montenegro and newly formed ACT Foundation Romania organized a swift fundraising initiative in order to deliver much needed health supplies, diapers and food for the newborn babies at the Chernivtsi Regional Children’s Hospital in Ukraine.
This humanitarian action marked the beginning of ACT 4 UKRAINE – a joint initiative of ACT Foundation, Mohanji International Foundation and ACT 4 Hunger, in answer to the humanitarian crisis in and around Ukraine. Through ACT 4 UKRAINE, we dedicate ourselves to swift action, unconditional support to all who require aid, complete transparency, utmost efficiency and compassion beyond the boundaries of nationality, religion and other man-made barriers.

Our team chose Chernivtsi as the first recipient of aid because it is the only children’s hospital in the region that provides much needed emergency medical care for children. The hospital has 260 beds and specialises in paediatric surgery, neurosurgery and general paediatrics. Badly affected by the war in Ukraine, they ran out of medical supplies. It was time to ACT fast. ACT Serbia volunteer Mirčea, in agreement with the hospital director Pavlok Vasil Orestovic, met with doctors Olena Vlasova and Andjela at the Romanian-Ukrainian border and directly handed over the donation consisted of 83kg of baby food, 890 boxes of medicines and 39 packs of diapers.

Sincerity and dedication of individual ACT volunteers, coupled with the genuine teamwork spirit, is at the very heart of ACT.
Mirčea’s determination, 10 hours of travel to the border crossing and urgent coordination and fundraising among the Mohanji Balkans and ACT teams, made this swift action possible.
“We truly thank you for providing charitable assistance to newborns!” were the heartfelt words of gratitude from Ms. Vlasova Olena while bidding farewell to Mirčea.
We would like to express our gratitude to all donors and volunteers who participated in the organisation of this action, as well as the pharmacy Dr. Max from Timisoara in Romania whose support was simply amazing.
This is only the beginning of our joint humanitarian effort of supporting ALL who require help at the midst of the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.
Next step is to establish a humanitarian hub where food, clothing and medical care will be provided for all refugees from Ukraine at this border crossing. So do expect more updates from our end in the days to come.

You are welcome to support this beautiful imitatives through your donations, by participating in the auction on 29th August, spreading the word about the event or joining us at the concert in Dubrovnik on 30th August 2021 to be uplifted, inspired, entertained, and engulfed in the pure energy of genuine love and respect.
