Voice Aid Faces & Ambassadors
Voice Aid Awards
When you hear the name Dr. Elisha Attai, you are immediately introduced to another hero of the time. He stands up for women and gender parity in his native Africa.
He travels the world with his power and commitment. Gender equality and the empowerment of women is his life's work.
An avid sportsman and family man, he lives in Lagos with his wife and four children. As a native of the Nigerian state, he actively promotes the image of his homeland both at home and abroad.
Dr. Elisha Attai is a committed Christian and is involved in many activities based on his faith. As an active supporter of several charities, he also contributes there.
The well-being of the youngest is especially close to his heart, and so he supports a charity that cares for premature babies in Africa.
Dr. Elisha Attai was honored by Voice Aid as the world's first International Social Hero 2020 for the continent of Africa.
"Much more beautiful than a Ferrari in front of the door is a Ferrari in the heart", a quote by Giacomo Santalucia.
The lively Italian, who lives in Saarland, is pure passion. Everything he touches in life and works for is based on respect and appreciation for people.
Another quote from him, "I learned that I got a lot back from people through my dedication and sacrifice."
The full-time marketing manager at AOK Saarland was awarded the Federal Cross of Merit by the Federal Republic of Germany two years ago. What motivated the German government to honor Giacomo Santalucia?
The experiences he had as a teenager have shaped the rest of his life. Giacomo Santalucia came back to life after the most serious illness and since then has been concerned with the questions: what tasks do I have to fulfill and who should I help? His work is characterized by the idea of opening people's hearts and making the world a better place.
It is important to him to deal openly with one another, regardless of the color of one's skin or from which part of the world one comes.
One of his projects is the German-Italian Educational Institute, which makes a great contribution to immigrants.
Through his many projects, which always revolve around the well-being of people and peace, Giacomo Santalucia has earned the Social Hero Award 2020.
Dr. Karl Cutajar is another hero at this time. The practicing physician has made it his mission to help couples fulfill their desire to have children.
With a smile on his face and his professional competence, he stands by all the couples who wish to have a child together. To date, he has been able to help many infertile couples.
He is also one of the everyday heroes and lives on the island of Malta.
Thomas de Vachroi is a true individualist and helps the poorest in society. As Poverty Commissioner of the non-profit Diakonie Berlin, he supports people who have less than little. People who live on the street.
This everyday hero has his center of life in Berlin. He also puts his energy into numerous projects as the social representative of the New Cologne CDU and as the director of the Diakoniehaus Britz.
It was he who initiated the petition for supermarkets to give surplus food to the needy.
Thomas de Vachroi will also be honored for his efforts by Voice Aid.
Marc Andre and Christian Grimm are among these everyday heroes. They live the heroism every day. Because their love belongs to the more than 100 residents they care for every day in their classic retirement home, in their retirement hotels and day care, and in their assisted living.
The two brothers have already absorbed the helper gene with their mother's milk, as they are already the second generation to honor the work of their parents.
According to Christian Grimm, Covid time in particular demands everything, and from every employee. In addition to caring for their residents, the team takes care of the mail, goes shopping and runs errands, and, of course, keeps in touch with relatives who are unable to see their loved ones due to Corona regulations.
Now, in the second lockdown phase, the hygiene measures have been significantly tightened. Full protection for all employees has been the order of the day since then. This makes work and contact with residents in need of care more difficult.
The two brothers repeatedly describe how proud they are of their employees, especially during the tough Corona times.
Christine Joch, a nurse with a passion, was there for her fellow men and women 365 days a year.
In her private life, Christine also devoted herself to the children of friends and the elderly around her and became involved in an animal shelter in Fulda.
Then, about 10 years ago, Christine went from being a helper to a patient.
But she remains undeterred in her commitment. Christine Joch is an everyday hero and is honored by the Voice Aid Association as a Hidden Champion of Life 2020.
Ute Schultheiss, a true everyday heroine, a heroine from next door.
Ute works in a Rewe store in Michelstadt. Ute enters the supermarket every day with a smile on her lips. With her calm, competent and reliable manner, she is well-liked by all supermarket visitors.
Especially during the pandemic, she demonstrated strength, calmness and competence in all areas. She remained friendly and reliable and is therefore one of the everyday heroes of this time.
