Not all heroes wear caps, some are proving to be bright beacons of hopes in their communities.
Despite being unemployed, Pinky Sekai from Garankuwa county in South Africa decided to create a soup kitchen in order to provide food for pensioners in her community.
In July 2016, Pinky was inspired to touch lives in her own way when a group of elderlies came knocking on her door, begging for food while waiting to receive their pensions at a near by pay point mounted by the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA).
Watching them beg for food as they had no other source of income triggered her desire to start a soup kitchen as a way of helping them.
Despite the problem of being unemployed, Pinky forged on with the project, fully funded from the little she had, refusing to be daunted by her lack of money.
“I am passionate about helping others and uplifting the community. It really breaks my heart when I see an elderly sufferring” she said. It gives me joy to see someone smile just because of my act of kindness and their smile make it worthwhile when we serve them food” she said.
When the women in the community saw what she was doing, several volunteered to help while others gave them vegetables as a way of helping these less privileged. A piece of land was even donated to their cause on which they plant their own vegetables which they used in cooking.
With pure joy on her face, this woman is boosting the flames of hope in the hearts of these individuals and for free!
Well Done Pinky Sekai! We Appreciate You!
