Sandisiwe is truly a warm-hearted person and feeds between 30 and 50 people weekly from her own pocket:

The caring young lady notes that she loves helping people in need:

“I'm from the black African community and the saying goes, ‘umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu’ (a person is a person because of others).
“My motto is that if I can offer help in any way, I will.
"I believe it will come back to me in a different way. But most importantly, the smiles I get in return [make me so happy].”
