Raoul Wallenberg Award

The Raoul Wallenberg Award was created with the goal of distinguishing those people who by their excellent work and exceptional deeds find themselves worthy of the illustrious name this award carries. In virtue of the exemplary show of solidarity undertaken by these individuals, demonstrating integrity in their conduct, outstanding performance in their respective occupations, and for their firm and continuous support of non-governmental organizations, the IRWF has decided to create this award. The Raoul Wallenberg Award was presented for the first time in year 2000, thereby bestowing upon the 21st century a much-needed welcoming message of hope.
