MTN needs help to find the unsung heroes of South Africa, and you found them! These are the heroes that went above and beyond this week.


South Africa (19 June 2020) – South Africans have braved so much over the last few months. COVID-19 has put many to the test, and in the wake of the chaos, there are unsung heroes surfacing. MTN has set out to celebrate these heroes for all they are doing during this time.

It is these stories that MTN wants to hear as it calls on all South Africans to “shout-out” their COVID-19 heroes so that they can get the recognition they deserve.

“We want to celebrate every hero that walks amongst us. It doesn’t matter who it is, or what they’ve done. Whether it’s a retail worker at your local store, your local petrol attendant, teachers who have embraced online learning, your pharmacist, your doctor, nurse, a local charity organisation, or anyone else that you feel deserves recognition, please share their stories with us,” says Jacqui O’Sullivan, Corporate Affairs Executive at MTN South Africa.

The call to celebrate the unsung heroes has been answered! South Africans have spoken, these are the #WeGoodTogether MTN heroes of Mzanzi. Stay tuned, we plan to share your heroes every week, so keep on sending them in. Take a look at this week’s unsung heroes below.
