A saying says “Family First”!!. A South African man took to his Twitter page to share pictures of the house he built for his mother as a surprise gift in a bid to inspire others.
The man sharing the pictures of the new home on social media decided to give a brief story of his life. He revealed how they went through and how his mother suffered to put them through the day.
He stated that he has been working towards this moment all through his life because he and his mom went through real poverty.
He went on to say there are so, many nights they had nothing to eat and ever since he was a little kid, he made a promise that he will take care of his mother.
He continues saying that he asked his mother to come to stay with him due to Covid and that period he was already building the new house.

I have been working toward this moment my entire life, my mom and i went through real poverty when i was growing up. There were nights where there simply just wasn’t any food left.
I did hear her crying herself to sleep sometimes, and she did put her head on the pillow because she thought i wouldn’t hear anything. Ever since i was a little kid i made it a point that i would take care of her.
At the end of last year i asked her to come to stay with me for “Covid Reasons”, but really i just wanted time to build & surprise her with a new house.
On Mother’s day a few weeks ago she came back and i welcomed her to her new home and invited her close friends. Together with my friend Kabelo (An Architect) we designed and oversaw the execution of the house.
Really grateful to God for his grace.
