ABOUT ISA AWARD
Every year there are those who make remarkable contributions to improve the circumstances of others. These honourable individuals not only see pain, strife and hardships in this difficult world that we live in but are stirred to bring beauty where there is none, and hope where there’s despair.
The Isa Award for Service to Humanity has been instituted to honour these exceptional people, and celebrate their selfless and tireless efforts to create a better world for future generations.
Established in 2009 by His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, the King of Bahrain. The Isa Award is granted every two years to either individuals or organisations who have been selected through a gruelling process by an expert panel of jurists. The laureate will receive a Certificate of Merit, a Gold Medal and a prize of USD 1 million.
The award has been named after His Highness the Late Amir of Bahrain, Shaikh Isa bin Salman Al Khalifa may God rest his soul in peace. It celebrates his long dedication to humanitarian causes and commitment to a world of tolerance and solidarity.
