- Dr Imtiaz Sooliman is the man behind Gift of the Givers - an organisation that aims to help ease the suffering of millions across the world
- The doctor gave up his life of luxury to travel and truly help those in need
- Gift of the Givers is mostly funded by ordinary South Africans with kind hearts
Gift of the Givers is an organisation that reaches out to those in need and is funded by South Africans who are willing to dig in their pockets.
The man behind the organisation is Dr Imtiaz Sooliman - a man described as an angel by many of the people he helped in his life.
What stands out about Imtiaz is his simple approach to life. He has no desire for wealth; he only sees the suffering of people.
Imtiaz admitted he does not even have a pension plan. Cape Talk reports Imtiaz doesn't earn much and has no formal pension plan to speak of.
The man now involved in helping his fellow man used to be a doctor with more than enough money. He had a practice and could afford to change his car more than once a year.
Imtiaz used to travel overseas on holiday, now he travels to some of the most horrible places to give a helping hand to those who suffer.
The mastermind of Gift of the Givers is proud of South Africa. When he asked for help when there was famine in Somalia, South Africans raised thousands. Even a poor school in Orange Farm made a huge contribution.
South Africans have been admiring Imtiaz's work for years.
