- A Good Samaritan met him per chance and blessed him abundantly to get him back on his feet
A young man travelled from Centurion to Cape Town in search of job opportunities, but was soon down and out.
Upon arriving in Cape Town, the luckless man was robbed of his possessions and left without money or decent clothing.
He was offered employment, but now lacked an ID and the funds to apply for one.
In a stroke of luck, a well-known Good Samaritan stumbles upon him and offers him a life-changing opportunity.
BI Phakathi regularly blesses unsuspecting South Africans who are in need of a helping hand.
Phakathi initially blesses the man with a meal and asks him to open up on his situation.
His story had a clear impact on Phakathi, who proceeds to bless him with more than enough money to arrange a new ID and some extras.
At the end of the video, the grateful man reveals his surprise at a black man doing so much for him.
