In a sweet reminder of the touching power of Ubuntu, a Mzansi woman took to social media to share an inspiring post about how she and an unknown taxi driver helped out a little girl in need.
Babyk Kasenyang shared she had recently noticed a taxi driver help a little girl aged around 4 or 5 years put on her shoes correctly after she had them the wrong way around.
It wasn’t long after that sweet moment that Babyk saw the very same little girl walk out a store empty handed when she was short of change to buy bread.
“I saw her (the girl) leaving the shop empty handed and inquired only to find that her bread money was R1 short and was turned back by the shop owner. I gave her the one rand and asked in the shop that she skip the que then she got her bread,” she said.

Saffas responded with heartfelt messages on the sweet post:
Wendy McLean said:
“Both you and the taxi driver have shown that it takes a "village" to look after our little ones, no matter where we are. The little one will remember your kindness.”
Helga Wiese commented;
“Shop owners please can you be a little bit more merciful to children and the elderly that are short on bread money. I understand that times are hard but please don't let them walk away empty handed... Fortunately this lady was there to assist but what about the others that are just trying to get a bread. So heart-breaking.”
Riëta-Marié van der Watt reacted:
“So sweet! It's the little things. Kindness doesn't have to be huge. Bless your kind hearts.”
Ellissen Meyer-Muller replied:
“Wow! That's awesome! May you and the taxi driver be blessed beyond measures.”
