“It is heartening to know that the legacy of COVID-19 will not be entirely negative, and that for every hero that we have recognised, there are thousands more out there."

In the face of COVID-19 pandemic, thousands of local South African heroes continued working, bringing information, hope and help to those less fortunate than themselves. MTN’s “Everyday Heroes” campaign called on South Africans to ‘shout-out’ their local heroes using #WeGoodTogether on social media, and the nation answered.

Throughout the months of June and July, hundreds of nominations poured in, says Jacqui O’Sullivan, Corporate Affairs Executive for MTN South Africa.

“Our campaign attracted the most heart-warming stories from South Africans, recognising those who are making lives brighter through their acts of kindness. In many cases these heroes are using their own time and money to reduce the hardships being felt by so many”.

Nurses campaigning for heaters to warm up their hospital wards; workers braving the worst of the outbreak to deliver essential services; journalists on the front-lines; teachers helping underprivileged learners with remote learning; individuals and organisations supplying warm meals; individuals taking care of abandoned animals; safe spaces for women, children and teens to seek refuge; and community members assisting impoverished households to survive job loss, depression and other challenges, plus many, many other individuals and organisations were all recognised.

To date, the below individuals have received their contributions, with others scheduled to receive deliveries by the end of August.

“It is heartening to know that the legacy of COVID-19 will not be entirely negative, and that for every hero that we have recognised, there are thousands more out there. We trust that our contributions will provide the boost needed to enable these heroes to continue their work. Overall, we hope that the campaign achieved its objective of paying tribute to each and every South African who continues to work tirelessly to make a difference,” concludes O’Sullivan.
