- A business owner and his friends worked together to help 36 of his employees
- His business has been shut due to lockdown and is not turning an income, just like his employees
- He did not let this stop him from helping them out in this time of crisis
Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
A generous business owner and his friends have banded together to help 36 of his most at-risk employees. The company is currently shut due to lockdown and none of the employees, including the owner, are getting paid.
Tamelo Dodson took to Facebook and posted in the Facebook group #ImStaying to praise her husband for helping his struggling workers.
YEN.com.gh learned that she thanked her husband, Shaun, and his friends for being "true reflections" of what it means to be good.
Here is her message in full:
"The company my husband works for is unfortunately closed until Level 1. As it’s an independently owned business it’s not able to support staff indefinitely, so it’s no work no pay for their entire company, like so many other South Africans. So my husband (in his personal capacity) and a number of his friends have started collecting groceries and foodstuffs for 36 of his most at-risk subordinates.
"To Shaun’s ex-teammates, a gracious thank you! ❤️ This would not be possible without you. You are men amongst men and a true reflection of the good to be found in your industry."
Facebooks users praised Shaun for his efforts:
Yvonne Berger: "So incredible and amazing!! ♥️ #Respect #realmenunite"
Zola Tezapi: "Kindness just as God expects of us, be blessed."
Mercia Davids: "Many thanks to Shaun and his friends. God bless all of you."
Wendy Murphy: "Bless you all for your good deeds to provide food for your less fortunate staff members. May God continue to bless you all abundantly for sharing so unselfishly."
Zeinney Clouts: "God bless your hubby and his team abundantly today and always Tamela. They are men amongst men!"
In other news, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a Ghanaian policeman whose name has not been disclosed has been captured in a viral video exhibiting a profound act of kindness to a stranger who was lying half-dead on the street.
It is indicated that the policeman was on duty when he received a call to assist a caller at Community 19 in Spintex. Rushing to the scene together with his team, they found the man lying motionless. It is reported that many of the people who were around thought the man was dead.
