A thoughtful woman came across a stranger's wallet at a shopping centre recently.
Briefly.co.za gathered that the woman is named Sharika and that she went the extra mile to return the wallet to its rightful owner.
The wallet contained no contact numbers so she decided to try something creative and contacted his medical aid in the hopes of locating him.
The medical aid contacted his wife, Algerain Varrie, who in turn liaised with Sharika to ensure that Mr Varrie was notified.
Mr Varrie returned to the mall and gratefully accepted his wallet. Briefly.co.za gathered that he blessed Sharika with a beautiful bouquet of flowers to show his appreciation.
Algerain was so impressed by Sharika's honesty that she shared the story via the #ImStaying Facebook group.
Val Munnik shared her reason behind the good deed:
"Angels on earth. Thank you."
Elizabeth van Zyl revealed that she knows the Good Samaritan personally:
"I know Surika Luiz's family, and am not surprised at her actions. Lovely Family. Proud to have them as friends."
Rina Muir admired a few things about Sharika:
"Thank you Sharika. God bless you (you have a beautiful name and smile)."
