After Ntumba Kadi Kalula asked on the ‘I Love Melville’ Facebook group for a broken-down car, South Africans have united once again to achieve the impossible.
Kalula took to the Facebook page to ask if anyone would be able to gift him a second-hand car, even if it was broken down- he would fix it himself.
According to the man in need, he was tired of the challenges of walking everywhere he had to be.
And, although no one was in the position to give him even a broken vehicle, they came up with a plan to help out Kalula.
One man, Clint Hill, suggested they start a BackaBuddy fund for Kalula, with the aim to raise R15 000 so that he can buy himself a second-hand car.
“Unfortunately, none of us can afford to donate a car as individuals, so I thought that if I started a fund we could raise a small amount R15,000 which we then could go and buy an old car for that amount and show that there is good in humanity.”
“Let us help Ntumba realise his dream of getting a car, even if its a skoro-skoro to give him a leg up and show that there is more to humanity than negatives and judgementals”, Hill said.
Since the fund was started, over R3000 have already been raised.
