Africa is known for receiving aid, and not giving it, but this African hero saw fit to change all that. South Afirican Imtiaz Sooliman is the Founder of Gift of the Givers Foundation, which is the largest disaster relief organization of African origin, on the African continent. Thus far, he and his organization have lent a helping hand to 32 countries since its inception in the early '90s. After the Haiti Earthquake, Imtiaz Sooliman and his group rescued a 62 year old lady by the name of Ena Zizi, who had been trapped underneath all the rubble, with no water and food. "Imtiaz Sooliman ... says the rescue mission marked the first time rescuers from an African country pulled someone out of earthquake rubble alive in another part of the world."
