Prince Ncumoh Zomba is a grateful father who shared thanks with members of the #ImStaying group on Facebook who prayed for his baby, Ncumolwethu (which means "our smile"). According to Prince, his son was hospitalised due to pneumonia that led to four lung infections.
The family battled and were extremely scared as he was hospitalised when the country hit its peak of Covid-19 infections. Prince was afraid he would lose his son. He thanked Stayers who prayed and sent him money for taxi fare so that he was able to use to see his son in ICU.
He also thanked those who sent gifts to his adorable little boy. It's truly an amazing #ImStaying moment and one that Prince will share with Ncumolwethu when he grows up.
Prince's full post read:
"I'll keep on saying thank you on this group till y'all understand what it means to show gratitude... That's me and my son who was prayed for by people on this group when he was hospitalised due to pneumonia that caused four lung infections.
"A very sad time I went through when Covid-19 was at its peak, thinking I would lose him. Some of you helped me with taxi fare to just go see him in ICU, some of you sent gifts for Ncumolwethu ("Our Smile")... Thank you so much beautiful South African people."

According to Phinius, Calvin had been smeared with paint by some people on Guy Fawkes, 5 November. Calvin's hair and beard were covered in crusty paint and he was begging for money for a haircut. Phinius offered to cut Calvin's hair and he agreed.
After the haircut, he handed a mirror to Calvin so he could have a good look at himself. He looked very sad and Phinius asked why, to which he responded: "I haven't looked at myself like this in 20 years." Phinius says Calvin stands and begs at a robot in Parkwood, Western Cape.
