The past two years have been tough already, but for some KZN businesses, it got worse following the looting and the fires that took down everything they depend on for their livelihoods. 

Timothy Govender was one of the people whose business had been burnt down at Bridge City Mall during the KZN unrest. He ran an internet cafe that he had steadily improved in the space of 10 years.

If you do not recall what his store looked like at the end of it all, take a look at some of these pictures:

How does one truly recover 10 years of blood, sweat, and tears when it all turns to ashes? 

Fortunately, the #HopeIsPower campaign has been of relief for most of the businesses that experienced a similar situation. 

Hollywoodbets and The Big Favour joined hands shortly after the looting and thought it best to support those that lost everything that helped them earn a living. 

Mr Govender was called pn Wednesday to the Hollywoodbets HQ in Umhlanga to receive his new equipment that would aid him in his rebuilding journey.

This is, again, the reason we love The Big Favour. 

There are so many lives that have been touched and changed through it. 

And, in this case, we are elated that Mr Govender will have some equipment to start over when the mall is reopened.
