- A young boy has inspired Mzansi by his kind act
- After seeing a woman unable to afford food, he used his own pocket money to help her
- His selfless act was motivated by the fact that he believed she deserved more
A young boy has captured Mzansi after his selfless act. When he saw a woman put back a packet of bones with meat because she couldn't afford it, he used his own pocket money to buy food for her. The kind child said that he was fortunate enough to have food every day and wanted to help another.
Charlotte Coetzee shared the story on the Facebook #ImStaying group. She said that young Chris-Tiaan melted her heart with his kind act.
The pair spotted an older-looking lady looking at meaty bones at Checkers.
"She took one pack, looked at the price and returned it to the shelf."
Chris-Tiaan followed her to another section of the store where he took a grilled chicken, 12 bread rolls and a 2L cold drink.
"I kept quiet and wanted to see what he plans to do."
The young boy went on to take 36 eggs and also gave that to her. He then opened his wallet and told the lady at till point that he would pay for the items using his pocket money.
"He also took 1L of his own yogurt from our trolley and gave it to her telling her that she and her family should enjoy their meal."
When he was asked what inspired him to do what he did, he said that he is fortunate to have food everyday, and she deserved more than just bones.
