A petrol attendant whose act of kindness warmed hearts across South Africa has been repaid in a big way.

A crowdfunding campaign for Nkosikho Mbele has raised more than R350,000 to help his family in Cape Town.

“My name is Monet van Deventer. On Thursday 30 May 2019 I stopped at a petrol service station to fill up my car. As I stopped at the pump I got a feeling that I left my card at home. While I was searching for my card a young man started to clean my car windows. After the search, I realized that my card is not with me and informed me that he does not have to fill up.

He replied: "Ma'am you can't run out of petrol on the N2. I'll throw in R100 and then you can just bring back my R100 whenever you are near again."

Without waiting for a response, he simply added the petrol and paid with his own card. urthermore, he did not even ask my name nor telephone number. He trusted me.

On my way back, I found him and returned his blessing. I asked him why he helped and trusted a stranger.
He replied.
"Ma'am I am a believer."

She wanted to raise R100 000 for Nkosi. Funds raised by this campaign will be administered by BackaBuddy NPC and transferred directly to the relevant institutions for Nkosi’s children’s education.

Funds will not be paid into Nkosi’s personal bank account.
