Nobuhle Virgie is a lady with a big heart. Nobuhle has no source of income at the moment but uses donations and the help of volunteers to feed the homeless every Wednesday and Sunday. On Christmas last year, she fed over 500 people.
According to Nobuhle, with the help of kind volunteers, she was also able to feed a number of homeless people on 1 January as well. She says she gets food donations from friends and family which allows her to cook and feed those in need.
Nobuhle shared her story to the #ImStaying group on Facebook where she thanked the volunteers and asked God to bless the homeless she feeds.
Her full post read:
"We cooked for the homeless on Christmas day... 500+ of them got a nutritious plate of rice, chicken, salad and a fresh glass of juice. I am staying because the same people who volunteered to help me prepare and serve food for the homeless also came through and we did the same on New Year's Day.
"I have zero sources of income but every Wednesday and Sunday I manage to feed the homeless (vegetable stew and bread) from food donations that I get from my friends and family. May God bless all my volunteers and may He continue to protect and bless the homeless.
"I do not just give them food, I have conversations with them and I do learn a lot from them, which makes me look forward to my soup kitchens every week. #ImStaying"
Stayers were more than impressed by her selfless act. Below are just a few of the comments Nobuhle received:
Sue Ann Powell said:
"That is wonderful and amazing. God bless all your neighbours who donate veggies, and rice and all the ingredients. It is incredible what can be done, even without having money yourself. Amazing."

Stayers were inspired and full of love at Manjomane's passion.
