In more amazing Briefly.co.za news, watching a community come together for the greater good of each other is simply delightful. A local South African community recently did exactly that and indeed those who heard the touching story of how they came together to help a young matriculant attend and enjoy his school trip were left truly moved.
The story was first shared on Twitter by Nthabbie but it quickly made its way to Facebook's ImStaying group, shared by Dumisani Dudoo Dabadini, who thought that it was worth spreading just how wonderful having the spirit of Ubuntu can be.
In the Twitter thread, Nthabbie explains how she had spotted a familiar neighbourhood gogo looking very stressed. Upon asking her what was wrong, the gogo explained how her grandson was headed on a school trip but didn't have most of the things he would need to enjoy the trip. The community stepped in to help.
