Fred Hollows Humanity Award

Our founder, Professor Fred Hollows, used to say that the greatest attribute of humankind was our ability to help one another.
The Fred Hollows Humanity Award recognises Hong Kong students who reflect this value in their own lives. Since 2012, the Award has acknowledged more than 1300 primary school students in Australia and Hong Kong. The Award started in Hong Kong in 2018.
