- A young man has opened up about the selflessness of a woman who is not even family
- He revealed the lady, Joy Bacher, helped him get into university when no one cared what happened to him
- Sabelo Mjenje Zulu's parents both passed away and he had no one else to help him
On Saturday, a young man, Sabelo Mjenje Zulu, took to the #ImStaying Facebook page to share the story of a Good Samaritan, Joy Bacher.
He revealed in 2005, his mother passed away and Zulu lost his dad six years later. Due to circumstances, Zulu said he did not even picture a possibility of him attending university.
However, Bacher came into his life and opened doors he did not even know he had.
"Thanks to Joy Bacher, who took it upon her responsibility to ensure that I register and get accommodation at UKZN," he captioned a photo of himself on campus.
"When no one even care what my destiny will be after matric. This is too much from someone who's not family. May God continue blessing her and her family."
Take a look at his full post below:
South Africans praised Bacher for going the extra mile to help Zulu have a bright future.

"She is your mother on earth. Your heaven mother is guiding her to help you."
Andy Deminey added:
"Make good on your blessings and don't spoil it. Show your appreciation by becoming the best that you can as that is all anyone can ask."

"Blessings abundantly to the caring family and best of luck to you make them proud boy."
