Anne Ferrer, who has been working as a social worker in rural parts of Andhra Pradesh, received the Jamnalal Bajaj Award 2015 for her contribution in the field of development and welfare of Women and Children in India. Anne joined hands with Vicente Ferrer, a Spanish philanthropist, to end poverty and fight for social justice in 1969.  In 2006, VFF built a hospital specifically for HIV patients.
In regards to the hospital, Anne said, “We started with giving dignity in death to those who were in the last stages of the disease. Then we began spreading hope to those who needed treatment.” Over a month ago, the HIV infection hospital received national recognition for their work with HIV positive patients.
