- The real heroes today are not our celebrities or sports stars but the people who save lives
- Paramedics, doctors, nurses, police and the people who make sure we have food to eat are the real heroes
- A proud husband took to social media to praise his wife for her selfless dedication
The real heroes in this challenging time are not the politicians, sports stars or celebrities. The real heroes are the men and women who put other people ahead of themselves.
Some work in grocery stores making sure we have food to eat, others work in hospitals and some patrol the streets keeping us safe.
However, there are a special, select group of people who are really there when we need them most, our paramedics. They are first on the scene to make sure that we get the help we need, whether it is a car accident, an emergency at home or if someone needs urgent medical assistance.
Briefly.co.za learned that a proud husband took to social media to heap praise of his dedicated wife, Janeldi Botha, who puts others ahead of herself, demonstrating true Ubuntu.
He captioned the post with this message posted on the #ImStaying Facebook page:
"This is my wife. A fearless full-hearted woman who always puts other people before herself. I just want to dedicate a post towards her and tell her that I am so proud of her. Please keep her and all other paramedic and other emergency personnel in your prayers because they would risk it all for our people of Mzanzi!
Social media users thanked Janeldi for her service.
