Welcome

The Gift of the Givers Foundation is the largest disaster relief organisation of African origin on the African continent. We have delivered over R1 billion in aid to 41 countries around the world, including South Africa. We have designed and developed the world’s first and largest containerised mobile hospital, which was deployed in Bosnia. It was comparable to the best hospitals in Europe and remains unmatched to this day. 

We run 21 projects , administered by our offices in South Africa and Malawi. The projects cover areas such as Health, Education, Agricultural Sustainability, Life Skills, Job Creation & Entrepreneurship, Feeding Schemes, Sport & Culture and Winter Warmth.

In the area of Health, we developed the world’s first containerised Primary Health Care unit; there are now 20 units located around the country, serving about 40,000 patients every month. We innovated the world's first groundnut-soya milk high energy and protein supplement called Sibusiso Food Supplement indicated for those living with TB, HIV and Aids and Malnutrition. We established Careline, a telephonic and face to face counselling service (0800 786 786 Toll free).

We have received 85 awards to date, four from Heads of State, all of which recognise the contribution we have made in the course of fulfilling our humanitarian responsibility. 

Our assistance is purely humanitarian and unconditional. We assist irrespective of race, religion, colour, class, political affiliation or geographical boundary. We are entirely neutral in our approach to mankind in need, are non-judgemental and have an open-minded approach to all situations. We work with governments to get our assistance delivered but do not align ourselves politically to any party. We have an excellent partnership relationship with the South African Government for the delivery of our local projects, as well as for foreign aid delivery. Our activities have been profiled extensively by the media both locally and internationally.
