Days into the Safety Roller Barrier Project in Kwa-Zulu Natal, we seem to have made friends with some of the locals. We, merely being total strangers from a different province find ourselves in commune and laughter with the KZN locals to a point were we started sharing heart-to-heart stories and experiencing a reciprocal and genuine love.
We had a moment to reflect. Coming from the busy city of Johannesburg to man a project not far from the rural areas in Eshowe and Ladysmith, no one can help but notice the dire position people out there are in. The locals shared how scarce jobs have been for them since Covid-19 and how difficult it has been to sustain their families. This can move anyone’s heart. The closer we got with the KZN locals the more we wanted to extend our hand to help.
We simply want to thank the beautiful people of Eshowe & Ladysmith for making what only would’ve been a work-related project, something a little more special and memorable.
