In a nondescript warehouse in Pietermaritzburg in KwaZulu-Natal, volunteers are hard at work, organising, packing and getting thousands of donations ready for shipment to countries in need of assistance. This is the machine behind the South African disaster relief organisation, Gift of the Givers - brainchild of the legendary Dr Imtiaz Sooliman. Heโ€™s built his foundation into the pride of a nation, assisting not only South Africans but the victims of natural and man-made disasters around the world. But who is the real Dr Sooliman? What has his experience as a โ€œdisaster touristโ€ taught him about humanity? And what lessons does he have for his own country, one flirting with calamity? A man of deep faith and limitless empathy, Dr Sooliman offers us a privileged glimpse of the man behind the public persona.
