A grateful matric learner took to the #ImStaying Facebook group to share how two kind ladies helped him in 2020.
Cyabonga Austin was set to start this year in Grade 12. However, most school have an outfit worn by matrics and he needed to get a uniform.
However, this can sometimes be pricey, especially when you add the school fees and money needed to purchase stationary.
Luckily, two angels in the form of Rhona Jensen and Cindy Mthembu showed up and helped Austin.
He revealed in the post that Jensen paid for his entire school uniform in full and Mtembu sent him money to buy a matric blazer.
Austin said the two strangers' kindness even had his mom in tears.
