A stunning young lady epitomised the spirit of Ubuntu on the one day she's allowed to be selfish.
Amlulamele UYehova Mzukulu Balu-Mbabala chose to celebrate her birthday in unique fashion. Rather than throw a lavish party at an expensive venue, she spent the day on the street in the Eastern Cape.
The 24-year-old graciously spent her time sharing her birthday cake with those in need. There is no doubt that the gesture brightened their day in this time of worries about the coronavirus.
She shared an inspirational Facebook post to share footage of the day and included this caption:
"One of the memorable birthdays I spent my day with my brothers in the streets. I am Amlulamele UYehova Mzukulu Balu-Mbabala. I am now 24. When I become more fortunate than others, I want to make my table longer, not my fence taller."
