About HK Humanity Award


The Hong Kong Humanity Award is organised by the Hong Kong Red Cross. Launched in 2007, it is the very first award of its kind in Hong Kong which aims to give tribute to individuals in society who exemplify the very spirit of humanity by putting it into practice and action. Through honouring their humanitarian deeds, the organisers hope more people will know about the universal value of humanity, spreading humanitarianism to all levels of society. Since 2007, more than 80 individuals were commended by the Award.
