Is there a word besides
humanitarian which we could use to describe any organization (non-profit, charity, volunteer, or otherwise) whose explicit purpose is to help people? Is that precisely what
humanitarian is for?
I associate the phrase
humanitarian organization with things like UNICEF and the Gates Foundation, and other big organizations that do their work at a large scale; I do not know if it should or should not apply to smaller organizations, or even to individuals who work towards goals that might be considered humanitarian.
What are your thoughts?
