Lead SA Hero for February is Andrea Dondolo. Andrea is based in Khayelitsha.

You might remember the lovely story over social media of a woman reuniting a man with his wallet at the OR Tambo International airport. Instead of keeping the wallet she found, Good Samaritan Andrea Dondolo returned it to the rightful owner Carel Norval. Norval reportedly gave her R200 as a token of appreciation for her generosity and efforts.

Dondolo was chosen as our Lead SA Hero of the Month because she echoes the message ‘we can all do the right thing’. The local actress touched the hearts of many South Africans when she tracked down a man who had left his wallet in a trolley at OR Tambo International Airport. The wallet had a couple of hundred rands in it and the man’s cards.

Dondolo took to social media after finding the wallet and wrote: “So at the airport behind our car guess what I find as I am about to load my luggage. A wallet left on the trolley licence, money and all. Am busy trying to track its owner now, want give him in his hand. Will track him till I find him.”

The post got so much traction and in no time, Dondolo found the wallet owner.

Dondolo is a philanthropist at heart, she believes in the philosophy of giving.
