The Indonesian government has recognized a national Catholic women’s organization with an award for its efforts in promoting and preserving diversity in society. The Catholic Women of the Republic of Indonesia (WKRI) received the 2018 Best Mass Organization Award recently in the category of Long-Life Achievements for its contribution to the protection of national sovereignty through work in different fields, such as health, education, culture and the environment. Established in June 1924, the WKRI is an independent social organization committed to working for the sake of people’s welfare and human dignity. It currently has about 90,000 members. It was among 15 mass organizations honoured this year at an annual awards ceremony in Jakarta by the Home Affairs Ministry.
