- A man inspired South Africans with photos of an agri-park in a community
- The kind person revealed that he transformed a dumping site into a large garden to plant veggies
- The agri-park will help feed families during the lockdown period
A man, Themba Malume, has become a social media hero with his innovative way to help feed the less fortunate during these difficult times.
Malume took to the #ImStaying Facebook group on Wednesday to share photos of an agri-park he started.
In the post, Malume revealed the large garden, where he grows veggies, used to be a dumping site.
On one of the nearby walls, it is written: "No dumping, save the children."
Not only does Malume's idea feed those who are struggling during lockdown, it also has a positive impact on the environment.
Take a look at his post below:
South Africans were inspired by Malume's post and they applauded him and those involved.
Gillian Simpson commented:
"That is so amazing. Proud of you. People can feed themselves if they know how to build veg gardens."
Celine Snyders added:
"You truly are making such a difference... Keep it up."
Margaret Mary Yates said:
"Well done, what an improvement in every way."
Jarrod Wilson wrote:
"This is amazing, well done buddy."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) MA Adamu launched a feeding programme in the Nigerian Police Force called the community sensitization campaign and palliative support program against Covid-19.
Flagged off on Tuesday, May 19, the initiative is targeted at feeding the hungry within the policing communities across the states of the federation during this present lockdown.
In handling the program, the IGP appointed the most senior female officer in the force who is also a commissioner of police, Dr Aisha Abubakar. She has a PhD in veterinary epidemiology and has a UNESCO award for women in science.

It should be noted that the idea was conceived by all serving female police officers, and the programme will be carried out by visiting all communities in every local government to distribute relief materials.
IGP Adamu said that the line between abject poverty and crime is a blurry one as he praised the female officers for the solution-proffering initiative, saying they are “worthy ambassadors of the force”.
