- He goes out of his way to help others and Mzansi applauded him
A qualified medic with Basic Life Support certification has been struggling to find employment for three years. He doesn't let this get him down, however, as he volunteers at the local ambulance services. The passionate young man always steps up whenever he encounters people in need.
Tshepo Segole has been unemployed since 2016. He currently volunteers and according to his friend, Ndlovukazi Ka Gubevu, who shared the story on the #ImStayingFacebook group, Segole is very passionate about his career.
He bought himself a 'jump bag' and goes around with it so that whenever he sees an accident, he can step in to help.
"This made me realise that he is passionate about this career and I regard him as a hero. I hope that he finds a permanent position."
Social media users agreed that the country was in need of more people like Segole. Facebook user Marlene Alt van Heerden said:
"Pray you find a post soon... our medical services need people who are passionate about their work."
Maureen Schroeder Lamprecht said:
"I pray someone who can employ him sees this post."
Thembi Mnisi said:
"Please God let those who can do something about it see this post."
Mashudu Khwerana Khotsia-Akonaho said:
"Lord I pray that you answer his prayer and give him a job that he desires."
Antje Bakker-Middendorff said:
"What about work as a care giver at an retirement village or in a private home. Men often prefer male care givers - also because they are stronger (lifting a patient, etc)."
Maria Fish said:
"I truly hope someone steps up to assist this young man."
Estelle Van Der Merwe said:
"So sad and there are many more in the same boat."
