A man, Andrew James Marshall, took to social media to Tuesday to share how a nurse went above the call of duty to help an elderly man.

Marshall explained a 79-year-old, who belonged to the same lawn bowls club as his parents, has been in and out of public hospitals due to his ill health and a busted shoulder.

According to Marshall's post, the elderly man had surgery on the shoulder and it kept getting infected. The madala later developed pressure sores and he was refused admission in a Joburg hospital's ICU.

Briefly.co.za gathered the elderly man had no one left to take care of him and he could no longer look after himself.

However, an angel appeared in the form of nurse Zola Mojoro, whom Marshal said took care of the elderly man with love.

"She has driven him up and down to Jhb Gen, fed him and bought supplies without being paid," he said, adding that his parents are working on remuneration for her.

Marshal revealed the man has since been admitted to the South Rand hospital, where Zola visits daily to change his sheets and tend to his needs.

"Her attentive care is an incredible example of two cultures being bought together just purely by love and the fact she can't bare to see this old man suffer, and I think this lady needs some recognition," he wrote.

Mojoro opened her own old age care center, Kwezizola Old Age Center, and Marshal called on Mzansi to help her live out her dream of looking after the elderly.
