- The Coronavirus pandemic has put, to be polite, a major spanner in the works
- Many are dealing with the impact of the virus and the lockdowns imposed in response to it
- One man received immense support after sharing how his plans had been thrown off course
The pandemic has followed South Africa and the rest of the world into the New Year, like it or not.
With so many people impacted by the Covid-19 crisis, one doesn't need to look too far before stumbling onto someone going through the most these days.
One such individual, identified as @NtsebiH, took to social media recently to share his struggle:
"Corona really affected my plans, losing a job is tough. I will finish one day."
Mzansi made sure that this heartbroken man, who had shared snaps of his incomplete home along with the post, felt supported and understood.
Take a look at just a few responses to the post below:
@EftiaFe: "U have covered most of the work...its only finishing touches...if it was me I wud put corrugated iron in those openings and move in stru...if there's a roof... it's a habitable space..."
@sbxmc: "My mother once said, "if it has a roof then we can move in." Just like you said. ❤ He will finish this project one day. Some of us were mocked for packing bricks for years and couldn't afford labour. I was told that my brick would be eaten by termites. Today I'm smiling."
@cypd_: "A delay is not a denial bro, you’ll definitely do it."
@Kwanda_Juju: "Bru I pray you get the job and finish the project.
@mmokgalagadi: "God is with you, don't give up now... keep hunting and hustle hard. Good work so far, I'm inspired."
@uHlabangane_: "I pray you get a job soon bro and you finish that house which you certainly will do."
@QueenMarilyn112: "Now you can be proud of yourself, you started 2021 in a good way. Regret nothing, just give yourself time to think of ways you can make money without being employed, with this kind of investment you rich already. Piece of land and a house."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za reported that Dr Sunil Bissoon does not believe that patients should be turned away if they cannot afford the life-saving oxygen treatment.
“I don't have the heart to sell air to the breathless,” said Dr Sunil Bissoon.
He has made it clear that he believes human life is valuable and people's inability to afford to pay for oxygen should not be a reason to turn them away."
