- A woman saluted the less-heralded essential workers
- While healthcare workers have received much of the acclaim during the lockdown, other essential workers have been grafting as well
- She cited her husband as one example and he works as a chef at one of the local hospitals
When President Cyril Ramaphosa announced the nationwide lockdown, it soon became clear that only essential workers would be allowed on the roads.
Most people immediately think of healthcare workers when picturing those still on the grind, but there are many others.
Shayna-Leigh Swartz took to Facebook to pay tribute to some of these unsung heroes.
In a touching post via the #ImStaying group, Shayna explained how her husband, Bevan, has selflessly contributed to the cause during the lockdown.
Bevan works as a chef at a local hospital and wakes up in the early hours to ensure that patients are well fed.
Briefly.co.za noted that Shayna's post struck a chord and many social media users heaped praise on her hubby.
Gifty Melongelic Thoriso Mogane said,
"Salute brother, we are proud of u, ur blessed and protected."
Sazi Zibaya added,
"Thank you is not enough but know our frontlines in this pandemic are appreciated and prayed for."
Michele Walford said,
"An amazing and dedicated person. Thank you. May you remain safe and healthy."
