This recognition highlights the individual and collective achievements but also the robust partnership between the University and Rescue South Africa, said Head of the EMC Department Paul Allen.

The annual Ubuntu Awards, by the Minister of International Relations and Cooperation Dr Naledi Pandor, emphasise the importance of honouring those who tirelessly work to elevate South Africa's national interests and values across the world.

The ceremony was held in conjunction with the opening of Parliament in Cape Town.

The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between Mandela University’s Department of Emergency Medical Care and Rescue South Africa, has been pivotal in advancing search and rescue operations and disaster response initiatives, both domestically and internationally.

These responses have been tested and as recently as 2023 and 2022, the University alongside Rescue South Africa has attended to the disastrous flooding in KwaZulu Natal and Malawi and supported firefighting efforts in Gqeberha, saving lives and infrastructure, said Mr Allen.

This year’s winners also included Mandela University honorary doctorate John Kani, far right, the MaXhosa Africa brand of Mandela University alumnus Laduma Ngxokolo, second from left, Springbok rugby captain Siya Kolisi and Banyana Banyana captain Janine van Wyk, second from right. 

The awards recognise outstanding contributions to South Africa's global presence and values, and was attended by industry leaders, civil society advocates, members of the Cabinet, and the High commissioners accredited to South Africa.

This year's Ubuntu Awards highlighted the exceptional contributions of individuals and organisations in promoting South African values and interests globally.

As the epicentre for this critical training and outreach activities, EMC at Mandela University boasts state-of-the-art equipment and a wealth of expertise in medical rescue, sustaining this critical role of supporting those in need and changing the world, Mr Allen said.
