Humanitarian

A person who helps others or believes people ought to be helped, regardless of their race, class, religion, sex, or other aspects of their identity. Humanitarians send money, food or other necessities to those in need. The term is often associated with charitable organizations. Critics claim that humanitarians have limited impact, while supporters argue that everyone should give what they can to make a larger, aggregate impact.
