Good Deeds Matter

The Irish Red Cross Humanitarian Awards celebrate those in our community who are dedicated to helping people in need.

What is a humanitarian?

A humanitarian is someone who has used their talent, time and passion to assist others.

A humanitarian can be anyone, whether they are a world leader, local volunteer, business professional or community worker.

They can be old or young, a journalist, a store owner, a musician, anyone at all.

The Irish Red Cross Humanitarian Awards have been established to remind us of what is possible when people come together in support of those in need.

Since 2018 the Irish Red Cross has celebrated this group of inspiring and remarkable people through our annual presentation of the Humanitarian Awards.

In hosting this event we intend to publicly recongise the inspiring examples of compassion demonstrated by our nominees and award winners.

The winners of the Humanitarian Awards 2024 were felicitated at a ceremony held on May 14, at the Royal College of Physicians, Dublin.
