At a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday, Mr. Emmanuel Anabueze, Project Director of HAM, announced the plans for the 2024 awards programme.

He mentioned that the 2024 edition aims to discover unrecognized charitable individuals throughout Nigeria who offer assistance to those in need and recognize their efforts.

He added that foreign organisations who have championed humanitarian activities anywhere in the country will also be identified, and recognised at the event scheduled to hold later in the year.

According to him, recipients are individuals who have demonstrated empathy, selflessness and dedication to building a better life for everyone.

“The Humanitarian Awards ceremony aims to shine a spotlight on those who have demonstrated exceptional dedication, innovation, and impact in addressing pressing humanitarian challenges both locally and globally.”

“This event serves as a platform not only to honour the achievements of the awardees, but also to inspire others to join the noble cause of humanitarianism.”

“With a diverse range of categories, ranging from legislative members to sports personalities, from organisations focused on healthcare to those championing environmental sustainability, this ceremony promises to honour a wide spectrum of humanitarian efforts.”

“Nominees include individuals, NGOs and corporate bodies who have used their resources to promote humanitarian initiatives, and positive influence on communities,, especially during challenging times.”

“In the face of global challenges, we have witnessed the remarkable resilience of the human spirit, this year’s edition of HAM is our opportunity to spotlight the unsung heroes and honour them,” he said.

Anabueze said this year’s edition of the HAM ceremony, which will be held in August, will coincide with the World Humanitarian day.

He said the award was non-political, and therefore called on Nigerians to nominate any individual and organisation involved in humanitarian initiatives for the awards.

“Nomination for this roll of honour will start on April 20, and we have about 28 different categories that are open for nominations before voting by the public.”

“The voting is a public opinion vote where everybody is being allowed to vote for those that have been nominated, and you can vote for anybody you feel that deserves the categories that are going to be listed.”

“As part of events to mark the World Humanitarian Day on Aug. 19, there are programmes, humanitarian activities, outreaches , empowerment programmes before the award ceremony on date within August.

“It is our hope that it will encourage more individuals and organisations to step up and make meaningful impact in our society,” he said.
