The Gift of the Givers Foundation said on Monday South African photographer Shiraaz Mohamed should be coming home soon.
Mohamed was kidnapped in Syria in 2017 while he was on an assignment travelling with the relief organisation.
He managed to escape his captors and was safe in Turkey.
Gift of the Givers founder Imtiaz Sooliman said it shouldn’t be too long before Mohamed is back home.
“It should not be a difficult process, especially since Turkey is just too happy to send any foreign national that comes from Syria back home as soon as possible,” Sooliman said.
Sooliman said his family was delighted by the news and looking forward to being reunited with him.
“It’s a family that doesn’t speak much but they were overjoyed by the news,” he said.
