Muhammad Rayhaan Ismail Sooliman

Waqful Waqifin Foundation (Gift of the Givers Foundation)

South Africa

At the Gift of the Givers Foundation in South Africa, Muhammad Sooliman is focused on disaster response and management, search and rescue, and humanitarian relief. Gift of the Givers has a permanent presence in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Somalia, Yemen, Syria, and Palestine, and Muhammad is proud to report that they responded to all four disasters in sub-Saharan Africa last year. 

Since Gift of the Givers was founded by Muhammad’s family 27 years ago, it has expanded to offer a myriad of programs, and Muhammad, now a father of 3, is happy to hold a permanent position in the organization. He is excited to share with the Fellows group how he builds relationships with communities and tips for reacting to good or bad situations.
