Mella then asked Beverly if she and the man were family and her answer warmed Mzansi's hearts.

"I saw him rummaging through a garbage bin this morning and saw how he was chewing on bones," Beverly said.

She added she asked herself if God did not send the man on her path to help him. Beverly took the man with her to Ackermans where she bought him clothes. She then bought him something to eat and on Tuesday she'll give him a blanket.

"Let us thank Beverly for her beautiful heart and hope that she's blessed beyond measure," Mella wrote in the Facebook post.
