A beautiful woman, Kudzanai T Masiiwa and her husband, both lost their jobs when the country went into lockdown to try and curb the spread of the coronavirus.
Unemployment placed more pressure on the couple, who are expecting a little girl in August. Masiiwa took to the #ImStaying Facebook page to detail how stressed she and her husband were about having no income months before they are going to become parents.
She revealed that they did not have anything prepared for their newborn baby despite her due date getting closer each day.
However, one kind lady reached out and helped. Masiiwa told Mzansi social media users that the lady, Karien, helped them by gifting them with all the baby necessities.
Her post read:
"Due to this lockdown my husband and I lost our jobs and it was the most painful and stressful time for us... I am pregnant and almost due and we didn't have anything prepared for our unborn baby. Last week we met a lady right here on Facebook Marketplace who gave us everything we needed to welcome our baby into this world. This is why I'm staying. #ThankYouKarien"
