A man who begs outside a grocery store every day was surprised by a kind stranger who not only bought him food, but paid his rent as well.
A kind Samaritan, BI Phakathi, has once again warmed our hearts on this cold winter day. Phakathi, who Briefly.co.za previously reported on due to his kindness, opened his wallet to a beggar.
A video which was posted on his Facebook page on Monday morning shows Phakathi taking a crippled beggar into a store - telling him to take what he needed.
"This man is known for begging anyone at the door for lunch but this time things changed," he captioned the inspiring video.
After buying the man groceries, Phakathi handed him an undisclosed amount of money to pay his rent.
The video gathered over 22 000 views in just a couple of hours and social media users applauded Phakathi for his kindness.
Annatjie M De Villiers commented: "Oh good heavens...They are ALWAYS happy to take the least. It's to expensive....He kept on saying....Bread is to expensive...shame. We do not realise how blessed we are. God bless you."
Eugen Derera added: "So inspiring to watch in the morning. There are people who still care for others. Thank you sir."
Shaun Musawenkosi Yachty wrote: "Good energy. We appreciate you brother, you deserve everything good coming your way."
