The sec­ond South African icon

in the 21 Icons se­ries is Dr Im­tiaz Sooliman, the founder of South African hu­man­i­tar­ian aid or­gan­i­sa­tion Gift of the Givers.

Dur­ing a por­trait sit­ting, Sooliman talks to film maker Adrian Steirn about his work in the world’s dis­as­ter zones; his view that, re­gard­less of race,

re­li­gion or ge­og­ra­phy, hu­mankind is one na­tion; and the no­tion that South Africa

may be one of the only coun­tries in the world to have

em­braced this fact
