On Wednesday, a social media user, Regomoditswe Remo, shared how Good Samaritans reached out to her family.
Remo explained they are a family of six who rely on her father's UIF grant. However, with the lockdown they attempted to submit his account online but it got suspended before the payout.
Without any money, the family soon ran out of food and electricity. So, Remo turned to a group called People of Hammanskraal.
Remo asked for only R10 electricity to cook porridge for the family. However, the kind strangers ended up buying the family 477.2 electricity units as well as food and sanitary pads.
