Fred Hollows Humanity Award Fred Hollows Humanity Award

Fred Hollows Humanity Award

The Fred Hollows Foundation is proud to invite schools to nominate Upper Primary students (P4-P6) who are making a positive difference in their community in the 2017-2018 academic year.

Founder of our Foundation, Professor Fred Hollows, used to say that the greatest attribute of human kind was our ability to help one another. This Award recognises students who reflect this value in their own lives.
The Fred Hollows Humanity Award has recognised more than 750 primary school students in Australia since 2012. We are proud to now bring this award to Hong Kong.
