Gift of the Givers has thanked its staff, donors, the media and volutneers as it celebrates its 23 birthday.
In keeping with the humility and focus on serving those in crisis, founder, Imtiaaz Sooliman, said there would be no party or cutting of a cake, rather just thankfulness that the organsiation has been able to serve those in dire need across the world.
‘We appreciate the contribution of every single person, be it cash or kind, be it one rand or one hundred thousand rand; be it in the form of prayer, words of support, well wishes, advice or promoting our activities through whatever manner’, said Sooliman.
Gift of the Givers works within South Africa and globally assisting with disasters by providing medical support, food and water distributions, and setting up temprary structures to house thousands who are left displaced.
When others are still having meetings, Gift of the Givers’ planes are airborne with urgetnly needed aid and voluteers. The organisation worked tiresly in the release of Yolanda and Pierre Korkie who were been held captive in Yemen.
Thank you to all at Gift of the Givers as well as the organisations and individuals who assist – quickly – when there is a crisis.
