Businessman Collen Mashawana has found a new recipient for his generosity - 26-year-old Tebogo Makwala.
Mashawana visited the young woman at her dilapidated house and learned her heartbreaking story.
When Makwala, the youngest of eight kids, was only two she suffered serve burns. On top of that, she was left ophaned when both her parents passed away.
"Tebogo has been living alone in this unsafe structure in Shikwambane Village for many years. The one room dwelling is in a bad state, no electricity, no water, no access to toilet and the structure might fall apart anytime," Mashawana wrote on Facebook on Sunday.
The businessman, who is dating Thembi Seete, promised Makwala a new house and she has since moved in with her neighbours while waiting for assistance.
It is not the first time Mashawana helped underprivileged families. On Monday, Briefly.co.za reported the Afribiz owner handed over a new house to a child-headed family.
According to Mashawana, the family's house burnt down just a couple of weeks ago and he took it upon himself to build them a new one.
Photos of the family's new home were posted on social media and Mashawana was hailed a local hero.
