Following news of Karabo Mokoena's death last week, countless women across the country have come forward with their stories of abuse and rape as well as other near-death experiences at the hands of men, and while every story is heart-wrenching, one story in particular caught everyone's attention.
A Twitter user by the name of BlackSnow99 (whose real name is Bukelwa) shared how she had been kidnapped by an unidentified man but managed to escape before he could do whatever dark deeds he had planned. Unfortunately, the cost of escaping alive meant serious multiple injuries which she is still recovering from. She even pleaded with the timeline to help her find someone who could restore her smile.
Twitter users then brought this to the attention of a celebrity dentist, Dr. Alexander F. Rawhani, who goes by the moniker, Dr. Smile - Lex Leo.
Dr. Smile then gladly obliged to help and wasted no time in starting the process to restore Bukelwa's smile.
Dearest @BlackSnow99, kindly DM me your number, I will take care of the rest ❤️— Dr Smile®/LexLeo™ (@DrSmileLexLeo) May 11, 2017

She took her sisters along on her first consultation and the process to restore her smile is underway.
