- Pearl Thusi might have lost it over the number of people that were out and about during lockdown, but she has since decided to help
- Many people do not have money to buy food during lockdown and Pearl feels she needs to help
- Taking to social media, Pearl extended her helping hand to assist those less fortunate
Pearl Thusi recently got shaded hard for complaining about those who were not adhering to the lockdown rules. So, she decided to take a new approach and help people instead.
The lockdown has left many without homes, food and incomes – it is a truly trying time for all.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Pearl put her hand in her pocket and helped those in need.
After many followers explained to Pearl that a lot of people had only been paid or received grants after the lockdown had already commenced, Pearl calmed down and understood a little better as to why so many people were out.
Understanding that there are also many others who can’t afford food at all because of lockdown, Pearl reached out asking where she can donate food too, to help those less fortunate.
Pearl also shared how shocked she was with the government – they really have not done enough for those in need.
"I was certain SA govt would provide food parcels to people who would be left most vulnerable during the lockdown. To people without electricity and water - what could be the solution? I heard there are water tanks? What’s happening in those areas?"
