Along with sharing this awe-inspiring video, Finch had also previously shared a video which showed her community coming out onto their balconies to give health care workers, the military, police service, security patrols, and essential service providers a round of applause as a sign of thanks and appreciation for all they’ve done during these trying times.

After seeing the amazing response fellow South Africans had to her video, Finch, along with a group of friends have set up a ‘BackaBuddy’ campaign which promises to feed a family during lockdown.
“We are crowdfunding to purchase Nurtiwell Nutritional Packs which comprise of 1kg Instant Porridge, 1kg Instant Shake, 1kg Thick Vegetable Soup and 1kg Soya Mince Stew.
This pack provides an estimated 120 adult meals and costs R251.00 per pack. This is enough to feed one adult for a month or two children.”
