Kofer shared the heartbreaking story of a young homeless woman, who gave birth to a baby boy on Saturday at the Addington Hospital in Durban.

According to Kofer, who works with the lady's aunt, the young mother lived on the streets but she decided to turn her life around and give the best possible care to her son.

However, neither the young mother or her baby had anything- no place to stay, no clothes and no food.

Kofer said her colleague helped out by giving the young mom a place to stay and she has since gathered more stuff for the baby, but they still need South Africans' help.

Briefly.co.za came in contact with Kofer to find out more about the mom's dilemma. She said they were trying to gather food and clothing for the mother.

Kofer said the lady wears a size 34 or 36 and they would be grateful for anyone willing to donate second hand clothing.

She added any food or food voucher would also be appreciated. Those who live in Durban can either drop it off at her work place or she'll pick it up.

Those who do not live nearby can make use of a docex box: c/o Carolyn Kofer, Kempston Truck Hire, Docex 59 Durban.
