When a disaster or emergency hits, humanitarians are quick to act. Everyday Canadians travel across the world to offer their skills and expertise to vulnerable people. Faces of Humanity
is a new campaign that showcases the work of Canadians who are providing life-saving assistance around the world.
What is Faces of Humanity?
Faces of Humanity explores Canada’s humanitarian story through the personal accounts
of Canadian Red Cross workers who responded to emergencies and disasters. From doctors who provided critically-needed healthcare, to engineers and electricians who supplied clean water and electricity, these aid workers helped to fight Ebola in West Africa, responded to the devastating earthquake in Nepal, or supported Syrian refugees as they fled violence and war.
Want to get involved? Events
are taking place across Canada, including talks from aid workers and exhibits featuring striking photos of these humanitarians. We will also be profiling the work of these aid workers here on Red Cross Talks.

This project was made possible through the generous support of the Government of Canada.
