10 Most Famous Humanitarians Known to The World

Famous Humanitarians

By MA KhalidPublished about a year ago 6 min read

There are currently over 7.4 billion people on the planet. These people are human beings in the world, but there is no 'humanity' left. It's not uncommon to see a man on the street while a millionaire walks by; the man asked for a dollar but couldn't even give that. The same Millionaire will be watched through the windows of a fancy restaurant by the same street beggar as he spends over a thousand dollars on Champagne and Caviar or throws hundreds of dollars at a time, causing a money rain effect on a stripper he doesn't know and she doesn't know. Both the beggar and the stripper are unaware of the Millionaire, but because the stripper is a stripper and the beggar is a beggar, the beggar is a beggar. The Millionaire’s choice of who he spends money one is determined by who is off his class standards. It’s the way of the world as we know it.

Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln is regarded as a humanitarian "as wide as the world," which not many people, let alone humanitarians known to history, have achieved. Abe Lincoln, on the other hand, is remembered for his revolutionary statement, which trumped everything the world needed to believe in someone. His remark, "Government of the people, for the people, by the people," encapsulated everything that exemplified utter democracy and fairness, as well as everything that other selfish leaders could not be to the people of a country. Abe has served as an inspiration to many generations of people, including other well-known humanitarians who will be honored as we progress.

Mahatma Gandhi

His Name means: “Great Soul” and in an era of where only violence, brutal killings, destruction to civilization and world revolutions were taking place, one man, who took the greatest leap of faith in his life to oppose against violence acts, emerging and leading brave in perseverance, hope and patience, fearless of the possibility that by his opposition, he could have been killed and gotten killed as well. This hasn’t stopped him as his stride of bringing about change was unstoppable. This was the man who defined true determination to a cause in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s.

Desmond Tutu

We'll have a 'Desmond ThreeThree' if you add one more "two" sounding part to his name. I'm kidding! Don't laugh; this man has a genuine smile as bright as the sun and a heart as bright as the sun. Desmond Tutu is an ArchBishop and one of the greatest Elderly men South Africa has known. He is also well-known and recognized worldwide for his peace-making, kind-hearted, and completely sincere nature. What more can you ask of an Archbishop? Besides being a Pope though, his personality isn’t fake or in pretense while in the eyes of the media or the people.

Michael Jackson

Our beloved pop icon, Michael Jackson, comes in at number seven on this list of the world's most famous humanitarians. Because he will never be forgotten and his memory lives on even years after his tragic and world-changing death. Dark stage, all of a sudden the famous stage spotlight flicks, bam! All the world can see is a man with a shinny glittery sequined attire, trademarked glove on one hand and a black fedora hat just placed onto his head, then a quick sudden movement at the sound que of his first opening performance on show.

Angelina Jolie

An Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie has been named one of the “most beautiful women” in the world. She has been given the title not only for her physical beauty but also for her exquisitely beautiful heart. She has been on countless field missions to some of the most remote countries in the world. She along-with her husband Brad Pitt established The Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation in 2006 to assist with humanitarian crises worldwide. To launch the foundation, the couple donated $1 million to Doctors Without Borders and Global Action for Children. She has dedicated a lot time to eradicating extreme poverty, conserving wildlife and protecting natural resources.

Oprah Winfrey

The world's richest women are rich not only in money but also in their hearts. She has a real heart that appears to be so kind that, if provoked, she could cry on prompt to see something or someone in pain, and you can bet she'd lend a helping hand as well. Known throughout the world as a true humanitarian for his various efforts to effect real change on a global scale by assisting those in need rather than making the rich richer or the poor poorer.

Martin Luther King Jr.

"I had a dream..." He said it and made it a reality! Martin Luther King is without a doubt one of the greatest humanitarians of all time. In his words as his actions taken to put certain injustices in place has proven this throughout the duration of his time of astounding leadership. He was an activist, humanitarian, Baptist minister, and the most powerful leader of the African-American Civil Rights Movement. Without Martin Luther King Jr. and the movement he has led to a racial-free America, There would have been the same amount of slavery and hatred for African Americans during those years of action today.

Princess Diana

Any women with a crown on her head can call herself Queen or Princess or anybody who is appointed by Royalty to serve as so but it takes another caliber and soul of a true women altogether to be able to have a real and pure heart while being beautiful and to have such a hiarachial position in a country. People's human sides are depleted by power and status, and they feel less of their class if they have to help anyone lower than them, but Princess Diana was not. She has only shown kindness and absolute royalty to her name, and she deserved everything of the best kind.

Mother Teresa

A humanitarian known to the world as the mother of the all races, ages will forever be remembered as a women with a heart of gold to offer. As a nun she has never had tonnes of money to over to the world, she has been richer in a sense of her humanness. In the times of when the rest of the world saw the suffering and walked away. She stood for the world and fed more mouths and stomachs that some mothers wouldn’t do even for their own children. No human being in this day and age with dedicate their entire lives to serving humanity and the rent she pays for her place on earth has surely been In the form of helping others to live as well where she can.

Nelson Mandela

Woah! Where do I begin to speak about one of the greatest men who ever lived, especially in my motherland, South Africa? It is an honor to write about him, to depict the true truth about this glorious man, 'Black Jesus,' as some may refer to him, and to do so without any regard for religion. It is simply a reference to how people in South Africa and around the world would have recognized him. If an ordinary man like everyone else had to be given Messianic status, this should speak for itself because people would worship him as a god of some kind walking the earth. Nelson Mandela will forever be in the air of South Africa as the man who made this country and surely did bring about more to the world by his life’s efforts,other than just political change of extreme magnitudes!
