//code to send multiple attachment and email with pdf

<?php
/** Mail with attachment */
function mail_attachment($filename, $path, $mailto, $from_mail, $from_name, $replyto, $bcc, $subject, $message){
$uid = md5(uniqid(time()));
$mime_boundary = "==Multipart_Boundary_x{$uid}x";

$header = "gcobani.mkontwana@agilelimitless.org.za: ".$from_name." <".$from_mail.">\r\n";
$header .= "ggcobani@gmail.com: ".$bcc."\r\n";
$header .= "Reply-To: ".$replyto."\r\n";
$header .= "MIME-Version: 1.0\r\n";
$header .= "Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary=\"".$mime_boundary."\"\r\n\r\n";
$header .= "This is a multi-part message in MIME format.\r\n";
$header .= "--".$mime_boundary."\r\n";
$header .= "Content-type:text/html; charset=iso-8859-1\r\n";
$header .= "Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit\r\n\r\n";
$header .= nl2br($message)."\r\n\r\n";
$header .= "--".$mime_boundary."\r\n";

foreach($filename as $k=>$v){

$file = $path.$v;
$file_size = filesize($file);
$handle = fopen($file, "r");
$content = fread($handle, $file_size);
fclose($handle);
$content = chunk_split(base64_encode($content));

$header .= "Content-Type: application/octet-stream; name=\"".$v."\"\r\n"; // use different content types here
$header .= "Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64\r\n";
$header .= "Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=\"".$v."\"\r\n\r\n";
$header .= $content."\r\n\r\n";
$header .= "--".$mime_boundary."--"."\r\n";

Apologies for the late approval.

Unfortunately, I'm not an expert when it comes to PHPMailer.
Did you check out the examples? Like this one (assuming this is the PHPMailer you've been using)?

<?php

/**
 * PHPMailer multiple files upload and send example
 */

//Import the PHPMailer class into the global namespace
use PHPMailer\PHPMailer\PHPMailer;

require '../vendor/autoload.php';

$msg = '';
if (array_key_exists('userfile', $_FILES)) {
    //Create a message
    $mail = new PHPMailer();
    $mail->setFrom('from@example.com', 'First Last');
    $mail->addAddress('whoto@example.com', 'John Doe');
    $mail->Subject = 'PHPMailer file sender';
    $mail->Body = 'My message body';
    //Attach multiple files one by one
    for ($ct = 0, $ctMax = count($_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name']); $ct < $ctMax; $ct++) {
        //Extract an extension from the provided filename
        $ext = PHPMailer::mb_pathinfo($_FILES['userfile']['name'][$ct], PATHINFO_EXTENSION);
        //Define a safe location to move the uploaded file to, preserving the extension
        $uploadfile = tempnam(sys_get_temp_dir(), hash('sha256', $_FILES['userfile']['name'][$ct])) . '.' . $ext;
        $filename = $_FILES['userfile']['name'][$ct];
        if (move_uploaded_file($_FILES['userfile']['tmp_name'][$ct], $uploadfile)) {
            if (!$mail->addAttachment($uploadfile, $filename)) {
                $msg .= 'Failed to attach file ' . $filename;
            }
        } else {
            $msg .= 'Failed to move file to ' . $uploadfile;
        }
    }
    if (!$mail->send()) {
        $msg .= 'Mailer Error: ' . $mail->ErrorInfo;
    } else {
        $msg .= 'Message sent!';
    }
}
?>
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
    <title>PHPMailer Upload</title>
</head>
<body>
<?php if (empty($msg)) { ?>
    <form method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
        <input type="hidden" name="MAX_FILE_SIZE" value="100000">
        Select one or more files:
        <input name="userfile[]" type="file" multiple="multiple">
        <input type="submit" value="Send Files">
    </form>
<?php } else {
    echo htmlspecialchars($msg);
} ?>
</body>
</html>
