Here is her message in full:
"The company my husband works for is unfortunately closed until Level 1. As it’s an independently owned business it’s not able to support staff indefinitely, so it’s no work no pay for their entire company, like so many other South Africans. So my husband (in his personal capacity) and a number of his friends have started collecting groceries and foodstuffs for 36 of his most at-risk subordinates.
"To Shaun’s ex-teammates, a gracious thank you! ❤️ This would not be possible without you. You are men amongst men and a true reflection of the good to be found in your industry."
Facebooks users praised Shaun for his efforts:
Yvonne Berger: "So incredible and amazing!! ♥️ #Respect #realmenunite"
Zola Tezapi: "Kindness just as God expects of us, be blessed."
Mercia Davids: "Many thanks to Shaun and his friends. God bless all of you."
Wendy Murphy: "Bless you all for your good deeds to provide food for your less fortunate staff members. May God continue to bless you all abundantly for sharing so unselfishly."
Zeinney Clouts: "God bless your hubby and his team abundantly today and always Tamela. They are men amongst men!"
