A Cape Town Uber driver Samy Bala has started a crowdfunding page, aiming to raise R1 million for a doctor who made news because he only charges patients what they can afford.
Bloemfontein doctor Dr Paulo De Valdeleiros only graduated at 51-years-old, says Bala, and chose to dedicate his life to helping others.
Kieno Kammies chats to 30-year-old Bala, who hails from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and lives in Parklands.
It takes time and effort to become a medical doctor, and for him to sacrifice all of this just to change other people's lives I thought this must be an angel, it is out of the ordinary.— Samy Bala, Uber driver
