When we grow up, we read and learn about fictional heroes. But we don’t hear enough about the heroes in the real world. They are out there, right this second, in the townships, at sea, in the farmlands, in the mountains, in cities and in remote places far away from any safe zone. They are out there because they believe that they can change the world to the better. And they do. WINGS Foundation wants to shine a light on the heroes that we meet on our journey and grant the ones that are truly exceptional in their field with the highest award that we can give.
