Kind Samaritan BI Phakathi is changing the lives of South Africans, one disadvantaged person at a time. He recently gave a homeless man a make-over and completely changed his life.
The homeless man, who identified himself as John, was assisted by the generous Phakathi in finding a shelter as well. After Phakathi paid for a month's stay at the shelter for him, he decided to also take him for a haircut and a short shopping spree. The man's appearance changed immediately after his hair was cut and he got into some clean clothes.
The grateful man thanked Phakathi. Mzansi social media users were also impressed by the act. Facebook user Lauren Seager Laas said:
"How amazing, I love this!! Thank you for all that you do."
While Busisiwe Tisana said:
"Wow this is beautiful - am smiling from ear to ear...God bless you my brother. Your stories are so heartwarming."
Terrence Chun said:
"I have watched most of the videos. GOD BLESS YOU BROTHER. They are many good people of all races who are struggling to just get a plate of food. So I thank the brother for doing what he is doing. Thanks for your kindness. God bless."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that a homeless man has taken to social media to thank a woman for her act of kindness when she helped him. He claimed to have had his blankets stolen and the woman assisted by replacing them.
