The JMPD officer warmed the hearts of many after buying a brand new pair of shoes for a school girl with torn shoes.
A Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Officer (JMPD) officer has won the hearts of many Joburgers following his act of kindness which saw a little school girl now able to smile and walk to school in brand new shoes.
WHO IS THE KIND AND SWEET JMPD OFFICER?
According to JMPD, officer Mkosi was assisting the young girl cross a busy intersection when he noticed the ripped shoes.
“Big ups to Officer Mkosi. The officer was assisting scholars to cross the road. He noticed a little girl wearing torn school shoes. He asked for her shoe size, the following morning he gifted the girl with brand new school shoes,” JMPD further gave context.
“His act of kindness is immensely appreciated!!!”
MORE KINDNESS FROM THE METRO POLICE OFFICERS
This week just felt like a season of giving by JMPD. This after they alongside DORLJOTA Taxi Association reached out to a number of schools on Monday, 22 May.
The act of kindness and generosity descended on Siyabusa Secondary School in Slovoville, Mayibuye Primary School in Thulani Doornkop and Siyabonga Secondary School in Braamfischerville, whose young girls were gifted with sanitary towels.
The event was organised by JMPD Region C Operations Officer, Phumzile Mkhwanazi and Officer Neo Maoba together with the DORLJOTA Taxi Association Women’s League led by Chairperson Khomotso Tiro.
The schools were identified by both the JMPD and the Women’s League, and took it upon themselves to assist the young girls.
