JOHANNESBURG: An Indian-origin South African businessman has been honoured with a prestigious award by an international humanitarian organisation here in recognition of his charitable work. 

AB Moosa, 43, is the third-generation CEO of the Avalon Group and CineCentre Cinemas, South Africa's oldest and largest independent cinema exhibition which first brought Indian films to South African cinemas in the 1920's.

The prestigious Paul Harris Fellow Recognition Award from the charitable organisation Rotary International was presented in recognition of Moosa's ongoing and long-standing support of Rotary and his commitment to its initiatives. 

Moosa is continuing the tradition by currently being the only Bollywood film distributor in South Africa, screening these not only at his company's cinemas across the country, but also making them available to the two largest cinema chains in the country, Rotary International said in a statement. 

He has done this through an association with leading Indian and London-based distributors. 

"I am truly humbled to receive this recognition. I come from a family legacy that has always been conscious of the need to support those who are less fortunate," Moosa said. 

Rotary is a service organisation that provides humanitarian services to the community. 

Through Moosa's support, significant funding for Rotary has been raised to support these and many more other such initiatives. 

The award is named after Paul Harris, a lawyer, who founded Rotary International in 1905.
