Hennie and his team visited Mata Mata and Nossob this time and helped 15 people who couldn't travel to Upington to see a dentist.

For Hennie, seeing the joy on his patients' faces is a huge reward. He recounts that one of the people he recently helped jumped around from happiness.

He says it's an honour and a privilege to help these people.

It's selfless, caring acts by ordinary South Africans like Hennie that remind us of the beauty that is everywhere in South Africa.
