BI Phakathi has changed the life of a man who is living on the streets. The man used to be a pastor before he became homeless. The Good Samaritan bought him food, clothes and even took him for a haircut.

Nkosana was found by Phakathi sleeping in a tent, surrounding by boxes. He said that he was hungry after Phakathi offered him something to eat. Before they dug into a plate of food Phakathi purchased, Nkosana insisted on praying to bless the food. He revealed that he used to sing in church as well.

Phakathi then took the man for a haircut and make-over. The change was unbelievable as a much younger and happier-looking man emerged from under the hair and dirty rags.

Just when he thought all his prayers had been answered, Phakathi added even more blessings to the the man's day. He took him grocery shopping and even bought him a newspaper, after he showed interest in the headline.

Just before they parted ways, Phakathi handed the man a R200 note. The grateful man almost broke down with emotion. Social media users were also moved by the compassion shown in the footage.
