Superheroes come in all shapes and sizes, but they all have one thing in common: they help make people’s lives better in some way or another. SuperMash is no different. This purple-and- orange caped crusader is determined to do something good – he wants to inspire children across Mzansi. His overall mission is to unlock confidence and kindness in kids and, more recently, to help them be safe from Covid- 19.
The Gauteng department of health roped in SuperMash to encourage kids to wash their hands properly to beat the dreaded coronavirus. And he is doing so well he’s even created a brand of sanitiser to encourage constant cleanliness.
