About Gift of the Givers

In Africa, the Gift of the Givers Foundation is the largest disaster response non-profit organisation. Its aim is to unite people to make a difference by serving others for the ‘Greater Good’.

Founded in 1992 by Dr Imtiaz Sooliman, the foundation delivers life-saving goods and on-the-ground support for innumerable people. It’s believed its support amounts to the value of R3.2 billion in more than 43 countries across the globe, including South Africa.

Recently, the Gift of the Givers' Winter Warmth programme, which aims to help poor community members by providing them with the resources they need to make it through the harsh winter months, donated 100 blankets.

“We responded to a request from Batlhaping Ba-Ga Phuhutswana to help villages in need in Taung, in the Norht West. We reached out to a total of 15 villages and four schools. We distributed 800 blankets, 200 67 minutes blankets, 1 000 food parcels and 1 000 5kg maize meal,” the foundation recently posted.

“President material”: Gift of the Givers founder, Dr Imtiaz Sooliman, named Social Justice Champion for 2021

In a previous article, Briefly News reported that Dr Sooliman was named the Social Justice Champion of 2021. This special announcement was made in October last year at the Social Justice Summit and International Conference.

Professor Thuli Madonsela, the former public protector, referred to the philanthropist as an 'amazing role model' who is 'supremely deserving of the award'.

The Social Justice Chair wrote:

"A huge congratulations to Dr Imtiaz Sooliman for being crowned the Social Justice Champion of the year 2021. Dr Imtiaz Sooliman was born in Potchefstroom and he qualified as a medical doctor at the then University of Natal Medical School in 1984. "
