Not all heroes wear capes. A man, Tembalethu Temba Tele's kind heart has restored many's faith in humanity.

Tele took to the #ImStaying Facebook page to share how his heart was touched by the livin conditions of a 80-year-old gogo and her grandson.

He explained: "The water was pouring into the house through the roof and sides when it rains. Both had to cover themselves with plastics when sleeping to avoid being wet."

It motivated him to help and Tele started an initiative that led to a joint effort to build the gogo a temporary shack.

"My last visit to her was to see a happy old lady, who said now she can stand at the door and watch the rain outside without getting wet," he added.
