While the majority of South Africans have been staying indoors during the nationwide lockdown, it's still been business as usual for those regarded as essential workers.
Healthcare workers have been at the forefront of the Covid-19 crisis and it can easily take its toll on the body and mind.
Natalie Esterhuyse revealed that it had been another long day for her and her colleagues at Wilmed Park Hospital in Klerksdorp.

Frustration and hunger had crept in, but out of nowhere, a stranger walked in and surprised them with soup and fresh bread.
He boosted their morale by commending them for their excellent work in helping South Africans during this challenging time.
To top it off, he capped off his visit by saying a prayer for the lovely ladies.
