Beautiful local nurse, Sive Ningiza, has warmed the hearts of more than 18 000 South Africans with her selflessness.
Ningiza was busy with her shift when a mother came to the hospital in need of medical care. However, she had her little girl with her and it made the situation difficult.
The inspiring nurse decided to step in to help the mom and she was photographed carrying the baby on her back while she conducted her work and the mother received medical attention.
Showing South Africans what it is like for nurses during these difficult times, Ningiza posted the snaps on her social media page.
The photos were originally posted on 8 July, but has been circulating on Twitter since then.
She captioned the photos:
"The show had to go on while they were busy with mom."
Take a look at the post below:
On Wednesday, Ningiza provided Saffas with an update. She revealed that she was contacted to share the story behind the pics and ended up winning R1 000.
"I was contacted by stories of hope to write my story regarding these two pictures and regarding my corona virus story that was trending here on Twitter. My story won first prize."
South Africans praised Ningiza for going the extra mile to help take care of the baby and for putting her life at risk everyday to fight on the frontlines in the battle against Covid-19.
Twitter user, @senzwa16, commented:
"Congratulations sister, when you are passionate about what you do results show kanje."
Another tweep, @dramadelinquent, added:
"Nurses are so underpaid. You're amazing."
Social media user, @RoyalBleuu, said:
"There was a calling, we're blessed you responded."
Twitter user, @Beaulah32737626, wrote:
"You one of a kind god will bless and protect you."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported a picture of a young teacher giving a lesson in a red bakkie equipped with desk and chair has gone viral on social media.
The teacher, known only as Nay, has since received high praise for going the extra mile to teach her special needs students. Twitter user, @Akki shared the special image, explaining that Mexican schools had been closed due to the global pandemic.
"In Mexico, school was cancelled because of the pandemic. This teacher turned her pickup truck into a portable classroom," Akki wrote. "She drives two hours a day to teach children with autism who don't have books or access to the internet."
The tweet, for obvious reasons, received heaps of comments and reactions with people thanking Nay for her determination to help her students. Kim Kardashian also retweeted the picture and captioned it with a heart.
