- Mzansi social media were definitely touched by the moving video and shared their heartfelt reactions in the comments section
A good Samaritan has gone out of his way to help a bickering mom and son stuck in their unhealthy patterns of abuse. Although currently homeless, the kind man blessed this family with a little cash to get by.
The touching video was shared by local do-gooder, BI Phakathi, who's certainly known for lending a helping hand.
Reconciling mother & son
In the short clip, it seems a mother is crying because her son has just put his hands on her. Not taking this offence lightly, Phakathi then speaks to the son, who's also battling his own demons.
Coming from a place of love and empathy, Phakathi reminds the struggling young man to respect his mom because from there all other blessings will flow. The mom and son then hug it out and accept a generous gift of a few hundred rand.
Social media reactions
Mzansi certainly had mixed reactions to the emotional clip with many condemning the young man for ever laying a hand on his mum. Still, others were sympathetic and were quickly brought to tears.

In some more news about generous acts of kindness, Briefly News previously reported that a man expressed gratitude to the Givers Supportive Foundation for coming to his aid during and after his surgery. The unidentified man, whose leg got amputated, was gifted some cash to get a prosthetic leg by the foundation.
Man expresses gratitude to the foundation
In an Instagram post, the foundation, with the handle @gsf_foundation, said the man would receive the artificial leg in a few weeks.
The foundation's post read in part:
"Early this morning, the bill needed for him to purchase an artificial plastic leg was delivered to him and in few weeks he will get his artificial plastic leg. Let's keep doing our best in helping the less privileged, the sick people and the extremely poor. It is more blessed to give than to receive. Givers never lack."
Gratitude for kind gesture
