Gift of the Givers has sprung into action again to help with food and medicine in the wake of the devastating unrest that left some suburbs of KwaZulu-Natal without a single shop from which to buy daily necessities.   

"You can have all the money in the world, but there is not a thing to buy," said Gift of the Givers chairperson Dr Imtiaz Sooliman between managing disaster relief operations on Monday. 

The well known humanitarian organisation sprang into action in the wake of the devastating unrest in KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng last week that at first seemed to be related to the jailing of former president Jacob Zuma for contempt of court.
