- A father became emotional after he could not buy his newborn baby clothes and supplies
- The man's cries were heard by kind staff members who decided to help
- The PnP workers bought him supplies and donated their own baby clothes
On Saturday, April 4, the Irene Village Mall in Centurion, Gauteng shared an inspiring story that proved once again that South Africans can stand together in tough times.
A father, Joseph, arrived at the mall to buy baby clothes for his newborn child. However, because of the lockdown, he could not buy clothes or a blanket and broke down in tears in Pick 'n Pay.
His cries for help did not fall on deaf ears and the staff at the PnP decided to bless him.
The post read: "Not only did the team come together for some essentials but they all undertook to donate baby clothing to Joseph in his time of need from their own homes."
Take a look at the post below:
The post inspired South Africans who applauded the PnP workers for helping a father in need.

"Ubuntu is what I see. God Bless Irene Mall and protect you from this virus so that you can help more people."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported a team of professionals has risen up to the challenge of ventilator scarcity.
The engineers were able to create a prototypical ventilator in a week. The head of the team, Tunde Okoya, the managing director of Lange and Grant Commodities Limited, said it was in their response to the government’s call.
The call was made to challenge local manufacturers to find a lasting solution to the situation of ventilator shortage.

“So we put together a technical committee and the result is what we see today. We studied and captured heat values using our thermo-graphic camera. Values recorded are great and there hasn’t been any thermal runaway,” Okoya spoke about the production process.
Okoya said the company has always been motivated to save lives and that's what was behind the speed that went into creating the breathing machine.
