First Lady Tobeka Madiba Zuma has been honoured for the humanitarian work she does through the Tobeka Madiba Zuma Foundation, by the Voluntary Service Overseas Regional AIDS Initiative of Southern Africa (VSO-RAISA).

Her award was presented to her by Baroness Elizabeth Barker, a Member of the United Kingdom Parliament. It was part of the Health Excellence Award which recognises individuals who demonstrate commitment to achieving the vision of “healthier, longer and better-quality lives for all people in Africa”.

Baroness Barker says that the First Lady is an outstanding recipient of the award who has a major impact on people’s lives in Africa and in healthcare.

“She is passionate about women and girl children and has been actively involved in many platforms, using her unique position of influence as the First Lady to help improve people’s health not just for South Africa, but for Africa," she said.
