Please tell me if "suffering humanity" is a noun phrase or 'suffering' is a gerund and 'humanity' is its object.

Hello, Coco,

"Suffering humanity" works like "suffering people" or "a suffering person."

The participle "suffering" is functioning adjectivally.

"A suffering person," for example, means "a person who is/was suffering."
