Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
A man, Bongani Prince Khoza, and his wife secretly raised money to build a house for a woman they barely knew.
Khoza took to the #ImStaying Facebook page to detail how he and his wife were touched by the story of a single mother of four.
The mom lives in a one-bedroom shack with kids and Khoza learned about their story. She told him that she lives alone after her husband left them a long time ago.
He spoke to the local council about an RDP and they said there was no budget to build the mother a house.
So, Khoza - who is a labour worker - and his wife decided to secretly put away money and ended up saving enough to build the mom a house.
They managed to build the woman a two-bedroom house, YEN.com.gh learned.
Take a look at the post below:
The post warmed the hearts of social media users, who applauded Khoza and his community for helping the struggling mother.
Renica Ramlugan commented:
"God's blessings upon you and your family. Great heart."
Louise Kurten said:
"What a wonderful gesture you and your wife are the salt of the earth. God Bless you."
Anne-Marie Kietzmann added:
"What a wonderful inspiration you are; God willing others in your community will follow your example and do the same for their struggling neighbours."
