Mzansi was left emotional after a young boy who goes by the name of Chris-Tiaan, with his gesture after helping a needy woman with his pocket money.
The image which was taken by Charlotte Coetzee while he performed his good deed was posted on Facebook by Charlotte Coetzee who detailed everything that took place at the Checkers retail store.
Charlotte explained saying that they were in the store where they were buying him a few things for his return for school.
Here is what Charlotte said in her Facebook post as she explained what had encounter at the store.
“Chris-Tiaan has just stolen my heart all over again. We were in Checkers getting a few things for his return to school this week. There was an older lady looking at some meaty bones (more bones than meat),” she wrote.
Charlotte went on to say that the lady put back the pack of meaty bones on the shelf after she saw the price, and Chris-Tiaan asked the lady to follow them to the Deli section.
“She took one pack, looked at the price and returned it to the shelf. Chris-Tiaan told her to follow us to the Deli section. He took a grilled chicken, 12 bread rolls and 2L cold drinks. I kept quiet and wanted to see what he plans to do. He then took 36 eggs and also gave that to her. He then opened his wallet with his pocket money and told the lady at till point that he will pay for the items. He also took 1L of his own yogurt from our trolley and gave it to her telling her that she and her family should enjoy their meal.”
When the little boy was asked why he did that good deed he simply said as Charlotte explained:
“I asked him why he did it and he said that he is fortunate to have food everyday, she deserves more than just bones,” she explained in writing on her Facebook timeline.
