A beautiful young KZN woman served as a stellar example of what humanity looks like recently. Her mother, Bee Tee Manqele-Mthethwa, took to Facebook to explain how she had chosen to spend her birthday doing good for the less fortunate.
According to the post made in the popular Facebook group, ImStaying, Mthethwa's daughter - a social worker who had just turned 24 - used her last little bit of salary to buy groceries for the disadvantaged community she comes from. She performed this great act of kindness on her birthday.
"My #ImStaying moment: My daughter, yesterday (13th), decided to celebrate her 24th birthday with a neighbour in our small hometown in KZN Hlabisa, Makopini Reserve.
"I'm staying because of the young people who are taking care of their communities. She is a qualified social worker currently working on contract bases. She bought groceries using her little salary, she wishes to build them a house from her pocket," she gushed.
Meanwhile impressed Stayers took to the comment section to commend the young lady for her good deeds. They also wished the young lady a very happy birthday. Read some of their comments below.
