- Nicolette Myburgh took a moment to honour the nanny who looks after her son
- The healthcare worker expressed her added reliance on the young lady during the 21-day lockdown
- South Africans gravitated towards the heartwarming post and kind gesture
The 21-day lockdown has been challenging for all South Africans, but especially those on the frontline.
Nicolette Myburgh is one of the healthcare workers making huge sacrifices in the fight against the dreaded coronavirus.
Nicolette has naturally been called upon extensively during these testing times and this could increase even more once the pandemic reaches its peak.
Her son's nanny has therefore made an invaluable contribution to her life and Nicolette took a moment to pay tribute to the phenomenal young lady.
In a touching social media post, Nicolette wrote:
"I am sharing this post to thank my son's wonderful nanny for staying by my side during the lockdown. We are supporting each other as we are both single mothers. She is looking after her own daughter, as well as her sibling's daughters. I am a healthcare worker who has to return to work soon and would not have been able to do so if it wasn't for her.
"She is speaking Xhosa to my son and now the girls can teach him too. He loves his new sisters! One woman supporting another woman. Please stay at home and take care of your family! Many of us wish we could do the same."
Briefly.co.za shared the heartwarming post via our Facebook page recently and the positive reactions told their own story.
