A selfless act by a 71-year-old woman has caught the attention of Zimbabwe’s richest man, who called the grandmother’s several-mile trek while carrying clothing and household items for cyclone survivors “one of the most remarkable acts of compassion I have ever seen.”

Plaxedes Dilon is being praised in Zimbabwe and beyond after she lugged the aid on foot to the Highlands Presbyterian Church in Harare, where volunteers have been coordinating relief efforts for thousands displaced since Cyclone Idai struck southern Africa in mid-March.

The church posted a photo of Dilon with a sack balanced on her head and noted she could not afford a ride from her neighborhood, about six miles away.

Now, Zimbabwean billionaire Strive Masiyiwa has vowed to build Dilon a home wherever she wants in the country. The telecom executive also promised her $1,000 per month for life, he announced in a Facebook post. (Here)

“What she did is one of the most remarkable acts of compassion I have ever seen!” Masiyiwa wrote.

“When this is over, I’m going to find her, and invite her to come and see me, if possible. Then, I will spend time in prayer with her! Then I will build her a house anywhere she wants in Zimbabwe! It will have solar power and running water!” he continued.

“Then, I will give her a monthly allowance of $1,000 for life!”

Dilon gave away some of the clothes she sells for a living after she heard the news of the disaster on the radio, she said, according to local news reports.

“I immediately packed the clothes and jackets that I earlier purchased for resell and carried my bag … the following morning,” Dilon told ZimLive.

Masiyiwa, whose company is leading local and international relief efforts for thousands in eastern and southern Zimbabwe, said her act of generosity moved him.

“I admire people who are moved to act in a crisis! God bless you if you are moved to act as she did,” he wrote. “It is not about how much you have.”

There has been an outpouring of support and aid from countries and relief organizations across the world for Idai victims in Zimbabwe, Malawi and Mozambique, where more than 750 people are estimated to have being killed by the cyclone.
