Friends of Africa have gathered for the third time to honor with this award those people and organizations that have done the most for countries of Africa and who have worked to improve cultural, economic and humanitarian relations between African and Central-European nations.
Since its 2012 foundation Iroko has grown into a prestigious international recognition. Among this year’s awardees, in addition to Hungarians, we could find Serbian, Slovenian and Austrian professionals who achieved a lot in their areas of music, painting, medicine, or communication and media. They have hugely contributed to showing a genuine picture of the everyday life and matters of African countries to the people of Hungary and neighboring countries.
