On Tuesday, Kayleigh Wicks took to Facebook to gush about her wonderful dad - who went out of his way to help a former co-worker, who has been identified as Sipho.
Wicks took to the Facebook page #ImStaying to reveal how her dad helped Sipho, who lost his job after becoming disabled.
"One of the staff members my dad works with recently became paralysed and has lost his job," she wrote.
Wicks added that her dad, Alan, had since been assisting the family with buying them cooldrinks and transporting them to their home in the township.
Alan has also started the construction of a ramp at Sipho's home to make it more wheelchair-friendly.
"My dad has gone the extra mile in assisting his family by buying the family cooldrinks, using his vehicle to take them to their home in the township deep in the Mpumalanga mountains and is building them a ramp to make his home wheelchair-friendly."
"I am #staying for my dad and people like Sipho and mama Flora. A very blessed daughter I am!"
