A Port Elizabeth fireman who came across a little girl without legs while he was out on a job quietly collected enough money to buy her a pair of prosthetic legs – allowing her to walk for the first time.
And a heart-warming moment played out when Siphosethu took her first ever steps in hospital.
The journey to getting the little girl mobile started three years ago when‚ while out on an assignment‚ Senekal saw her crawling on a gravel road with her stumps exposed.
“We went out to a house fire in 2015 and we came across this little girl playing in the streets with the other children.
It was like seeing my own daughter with stumps and that really touched me‚” he said. Siphosethu was born with congenital foot deformities.
She had to undergo amputation of her legs when she was two.
