A local woman has touched the hearts of South Africans after generously donating a R500 food voucher to a struggling HIV+ man. The brave gentleman first put out a plea for help or job opportunities on his social media account and @Minkie_Mash hoped to keep the survivor well-fed as he continued the search.
Heading online, @SfisosamiS opened up about the great kindness he had received.
"May God bless this sister... I don't know what to say," he captioned the post in part.
Sharing his story, @SfisosamiS revealed he had been left without both parents since the tender age of nine. Having discovered his HIV+ status back in 2012, the young man knew the road would not always be easy.
@SfisosamiS's plea for help came as a result of utter desperation, mentioning the pain he often felt taking his medication on an empty stomach.
"The reason I wrote this to you guys is that I plead for a job. Because sometimes I miss my treatment as when I drink pills without eating they cause pains in my stomach," he says.
Social media users were definitely relieved to see the struggling young man get some help. Check out the comments below:

"God bless you too."
"Just reading your story reminded me of my hardship. I have started my schooling at Leeufontein, Mpumalanga. I will keep in touch bro, stay strong. My hardship pushed me to hustle myself out of the situation. There is an opportunity in any hardship."

Well-wishers raise over R2.5m for mother, 3 children facing eviction
In some more inspirational news, Briefly News previously reported that Dasha Kelly was on the verge of being evicted from her Las Vegas apartment on Monday, August 2 and had no idea how she would pay her accrued rent.
However, after her story was aired, more than $170,000 (R2.5 million) was raised for her and her three girls in just one day, thanks to generous well-wishers.
Kelly sat on her couch, one of the final pieces of furniture remaining in her apartment, to see how much money had been raised, and on learning the amount, she was flabbergasted.
The family was featured in a CNN report on the federal eviction moratorium that ended this past weekend that aired on Monday.
"I just want to tell everybody thank you so much. I'm still in denial," Kelly said as tears ran down her face.
"I had no idea what we were going to do," Kelly said about facing eviction.
Mother of 3 loses job
When the Covid-19 pandemic prompted casinos to close last year, the 32-year-old mother of three lost her job as a card dealer.
According to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, she is one of more than 11 million Americans who are overdue on their rent.
On Monday night, she launched a GoFundMe campaign in the hopes of gathering $2,000 (R28 783) to pay her rent arrears.
"It gave me a lot of hope. And I just want to make sure I do the best that I can to help the next person that is in my same situation," she said.
