A lady who had queued with them from the early hours of the morning was RR50 short for the payment she needed to make and decided to go home. Sharleen stepped up and assisted the stranger by swiping her card for the amount she needed.

"I had my #ImStaying moment yesterday. My mum and I went to home affairs yesterday to have our passports made. We were in the queue from 5h30am. When we eventually got inside there was a lady that had R100 and the 2 applications she had was R75 each.
"She said she will have to leave it. I said you cannot queue for 3 hrs just to turn around and I swiped my card. The appreciation on her face was thanks enough. Thank you to all the Stayers that continue to pay it forward."

"Big ups to you": Kasi Hero buys girl, 6, new uniform and treats her family to groceries
In other news about good Samaritans', Briefly News previously reported that @tankiso_matanka aka Kasi Hero came across a six-year-old girl who was in desperate need of school clothes. He went out of his way to purchase school shoes, a shirt, jersey, tie and socks for the little one.
Tankiso shared a few updates after his initial post about the schoolgirl. A kind man donated R800 and Tankiso took the girl and her mother grocery shopping. He later shared that with R1 157, he was able to purchase all the items the family needed.
Tankiso later revealed that he delivered the little one's school uniform. He shouted out another lady who sent R500 to him which he used to purchase a winter tracksuit to keep the girl warm through the colder months. The kind Samaritan is truly a local inspiration.
