We encourage everyone to nominate individuals or organizations who exemplify the spirit of humanitarianism.”
      The selection process for the AACF Humanitarian Award will be rigorous, AACF said, with nominees evaluated based on their demonstrated impact and commitment to humanitarian causes. The award recipient will be announced at a special ceremony during Connect 2025, bringing well-deserved recognition to their exceptional contributions.
