Early this year, Senators were asked to nominate and award in November the prestigious medals to Canadians who are thoroughly involved in their communities, whose generosity, dedication, volunteerism and hard work make their home towns a better place to live.

It was a fitting expression of true friendship and partnership between the late Senator Tobias Enverga, Jr. and ANCOP Canada through its President Ricky Cuenca.

Today, at the Senate Chambers in Ottawa, 150 medals were awarded and one of them was for ANCOP Canada President, Ricky Cuenca. Presenting the prestigious medal was Mrs Rosemer Enverga, wife of the late Senator Tobias Enverga Jr.

"Today, was a great day for all ANCOP Canada volunteers and our beneficiaries. As I share this award to all advocates, volunteers, officers in various areas were ANCOP Canada is, and members of Couples for Christ, I remember as well the hardships we've gone through to make ANCOP Canada where it is today - an organization of people who truly answer the cry of the poor. I am blessed to be a Canadian, and doubly grateful for our friend, the late Senator Enverga for this honour."
- Ricky Cuenca, ANCOP President on his thoughts about the Senate 150th Anniversary Medal honor.

“As the Senate approaches a milestone anniversary of its own, this is an appropriate time to celebrate the volunteer work of Canadians. Not only will the medal highlight the contributions of Canadians – from coast to coast, from all walks of life and from varied backgrounds – it will highlight the wide diversity of the people whose efforts make Canada great.”
- Senator Serge Joyal, Co-Chair, Advisory Working Group on the Senate 150th Anniversary Medal

Ricky was acknowledged as "co-founder and president of ANCOP Canada,  provider of solutions to extreme poverty by responding to basic needs". It was also mentioned that "ANCOP Canada and its partners together with Ricky worked to build 2,500 homes for the poor in the Philippines and sent over 3,000 poor children to school". These students come from various countries including India, Nigeria, Kenya, Tanzania, most recently Ethiopia, Indonesia and the Philippines.

Congratulations Ricky! Congratulations CFC ANCOP Canada!
