A man has praised a farmer he affectionately refers to as "Oom Jan" for helping him in his hour of need.
His bike had broken down 200 kilometres from home and Oom Jan offered his assistance. The grateful man returned the favour by buying the farmer a little something to say thank you.
Tofolux Djmthokozisi Mchunu took to the 'ImStaying' group to share a short and sweet story about how he was helped by a stranger. When his bike broke down far from home, Oom Jan offered to store it on his farm until he was able to get it fixed. The man, in turn, bought the farmer some whiskey to express his gratitude.
Social media users loved the story of kindness. Facebook user Jay Jay said:
"Look at Oom Jan 's smile and hat... what a great man. Wow, I'm so emotional."
