A woman, Mari Lee, is the perfect example of how South Africans should treat each other. Lee took to the #ImStaying Facebook group last week to share how she helps those in need.
The beautiful 'stayer' revealed that each week, she packs 16 lunches for people who stand at the side of a road near a hardware store with the hope of finding employment.
Each package includes food and a chocolate as a "small treat in tough times."
Lee captioned her post:
"I make 16 lunches once a week for the guys standing at the side of the road near a hardware store hoping to find a job. This time I included a chocolate with each package. I reckoned everyone deserves a small treat in tough times and chocolate is always a good idea."
Take a look at her post below:
The post gathered over 28 000 likes and South Africans were touched by Lee's act of kindness.

Meanwhile, on Monday Briefly.co.za reported on another kind South African. Tshimologo Lesabane II knows of an elderly man, Mr Mokantshe, who can't walk or speak and he lives on his own. So, he and his family decided to bless Mr Mokantshe with a visit and some groceries.
His post was captioned:
"Today I made a surprise for him. This is Mr Mokantshe, he's staying alone. He can walk, he can't talk. Today I bought him food."
