Makhosazana Khosi Malunga recently shared a touching post in Facebook's ImStaying group about how a generous stranger offered him taxi fare after he learned that his son had been rushed to hospital by his caregiver after having seizures.
'"So I started a new job on Wednesday, so I've been walking for about 4kms to a busy intersection where I ask for rides, so today when after knock-off time I turned my phone on only to get a dozen of messages from a lady who is helping look after my newborn, she was letting me know that she is rushing my son to hospital as he is having seizures.
"When I was walking to my usual spot I was visibly distressed, almost halfway to my usual spot a car stopped next to me a lady rolled down her window and ask where I was going I told her she said climb in. We started talking, apparently she passed me but noticed I was crying and did a U-turn so I told her what was wrong.
"She was rushing somewhere else so instead of leaving me where I normally hike she took me to a taxi rank and gave me R50 for the taxi fare to the hospital, I'm staying because of people like Leanda who care of enough for a stranger to even do a U-turn," wrote the grateful-hearted father.
Stayers had this to say about the sweet post:
