Sariana Janse van Vuuren went shopping with her toddler at the Waterfront in Bloemfontein on Saturday.
Upon returning home, she realised that she’d forgotten her diaper bag in the trolley while packing in groceries.
Sariana was concerned as the bag contained a number of items, which carried sentimental value.
To her surprise, her bag was eventually returned to her by a woman named Dot van Niekerk.
However, the person responsible for retrieving the bag in the first place was Saliena Mofokeng.
Saliena came across the bag and had her reservations about handing it to security staff.
Instead, she requested Dot’s assistance and they tracked down Sariana themselves.
Sariana was so appreciative of Saliena’s efforts, that she took to social media to praise her.
