A pure water seller only identified as Zenabu has received financial help for her son, who is suffering from a hole in the heart to undergo surgery.
Zenabu' son, Masawudu, who is six years old, needed over R12 000 ($9,000) to undergo urgent surgery to correct the heart defect.
The minor's father had labelled his mother ''bad luck'' for birthing a child with a hole in the heart.
Through Crime Check Foundation, Zenabu's son has received the required amount to undergo the surgery.
The charity disclosed this in a Facebook post, saying: ''This is how pure water seller Zenabu responded after we surprised her with the much needed nine thousand dollars urgently needed to help her six-year-old son Masawudu to undergo a hole in heart surgery.
''Her husband has labelled her a "bad luck" woman for bringing forth a son with a hole in his heart. Many many thanks to Mr Ali Ibrahim for contributing seven thousand dollars into our Health Check Fund and to our other donors who contributed to the fund to support little Masawudu. May the Almighty God richly bless our donors,'' the foundation posted.

Meanwhile, Briefly News earlier reported that Ntombikayise Tyhalisi (31), the mother of Siphosethu and Amahle, twins who were born joined by their heads, recently expressed how delighted she was that her girls successfully underwent surgery to have them separated.
The surgery took place in February this year at the Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital. The girls, who were born in the Eastern Cape, were transferred to the Red Cross hospital when they were only four days old.
“I am overjoyed! I wasn’t expecting to leave here holding my children one in each arm,” says the young mother in a Western Cape Govt article.
