The police are there to serve and protect and for one family they went beyond the call of duty. Police members of Galeshewe, Northern Cape extended an helping hand to a family who were left destitute after a raging fire destroyed their house.
In support of commemorating Mandela Month, members of Group B, under the command of Brigadier Jean Westly, Brigadier Thabo Moeng, Brigadier Dick de Waal and Brigadier Adri Basson, showed kindness towards the family.
The members contributed towards clothing, bedding and groceries for the family. A wheelchair-bound widow of a late retired police official, staying with her five grandchildren ages, 8, 9, 10, 14 and 20, respectively woke up to a raging fire recently.

The family managed to escape with minor burns and the grandmother was helped by neighbours in the nick of time just as the roof collapsed.
Amidst the Covid-19 pandemic that has created many financial woes and now this to a household, the SAPS thought of bringing about some respite through this kind gesture.
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za reported that a fed up Boitekong community member in Rustenburg has decided to take matter into his own hands. Sosville has taken it upon himself to fix the roads in his community and he does it all without pay.
Sosville is not employed by the government at any level but he is doing a great job of fixing roads in Boitekong.
The hardworking man does the job without any payment and all he does is collect donations on a daily basis. Sosville uses these donations to buy the necessary material to fix the roads.
Social media users on Twitters have rallied behind the man, applauding him for doing something about a problem that he saw in his community.
