In times when theft and corruption seem to be at the order of the day, witnessing and experiencing honesty and kindness feels like a big deal. When a student returned a lost phone to its owner, some faith in SA youth was restored.
When an iPhone was lost this past weekend, the owner was sure she'd never see it again.
However, a kind student has restored the faith we have in our fellow humans when she made sure the phone is returned to its rightful owner.
It happened at a farm stall in Bloemfontein - Chef Janice enjoyed a visit from her sister and her kids who live in the UK.
One of the daughters lost her phone and as Briefly.co.za learnt from a post on Facebook, a desperate search began.
Just after 1pm, a student shared on a social group that she found the phone and wanted to return it.
Thanks to social media, the student met with the owner and faith was restored in the youth of South Africa.
The post was shared by Hennie Muller, a South African who has fun sharing good news in South Africa.
The student's behaviour was praised and prompted another Facebook user shared their experience, which was similar.
Thk u young one.... May u always be blessed.
Same thing happened to me Saturday morning. A friend & i went for breakfast at Batavia in Rose street Cape Town. Entering the restaurant i discovered i don't have my ph. Went back to the car & it's not there either. My friend called my no a few times to try & locate it. Lo & behold she receives a call from the person who picked up the ph & then brought it to me within a few minutes. What a relief! There are still honest people out there.
