The Best Among People
In a world of heightened racial prejudice, xenophobia and religious fundamentalism & bigotry – The Best Among People is a living universal example of respect and tolerance of humanity by individuals within an organisation that actively seeks to build bridges between people of different cultures and religions engendering goodwill, harmonious coexistence, tolerance and mutual respect.
The Best Among People brings to the screen the everyday South African men and women who commit & risk their lives volunteering for rescue and relief-aid missions – from where-ever they may get the call – both internationally and at home in South Africa.
These are the religious and culturally diverse group of South African volunteers that make up The Gift of the Givers – headed and driven by their visionary founder, Dr Imtiaz Sooliman.
Relief & medical aid for wars in Gaza & Syria, earthquakes in Haiti & Nepal, devastating fires in Knysna, crippling drought in Sutherland & Makhanda or cyclone Idai in Mozambique, Zimbabwe & Malawi – Gift of the Givers are among the first to go in.
On a second front, tirelessly negotiating the release of South African hostages Yolande & Pierre Korkie or Stephen McGown – held by Al-Qaeda terrorists for six years in the deserts of Mali – Dr Imtiaz Sooliman leads his dedicated team – founded in 1992 – in accordance with their mission statement: “the best among people are those who benefit mankind”.
