A woman, Phumelele Nxumalo, has the heart of an angel. Taking to the #ImStaying Facebook page, Nxumalo opened up about how an elderly lady's poor living standards touched her heart.
The 32-year-old, who resides in Richards Bay, said she was renovating her mother's house, which included replacing the entire roof.
Nxumalo revealed an elderly lady came to her house to ask if she could have the old roofing because her house had many holes and this proved to be a challenge during wet weather.
The kind woman and her mom decided to go visit the lady and they were heart-broken when they arrived at her house.
"When I got there my eyes were filled with tears because of the bad situation I saw in her house. She told us all her sad story. And I gave her the old roof and old windows that I wasn't gonna use," Nxumalo said.
She did not stop there, Nxumalo bought the elderly lady groceries for Christmas. Nxumalo ended the post by asking South Africans to pray for her so that she makes enough money this year to build the struggling gogo a two-bedroom house.
The story inspired South Africans who applauded Nxumalo for her selflessness, Briefly.co.za gathered.
Heidi Wilbers commented:
"May the Lord fulfill your heart's desire to help the lady build her house. May He provide far in abundance more than what you need to help her. Bless you for your generous spirit."
