- An impoverished woman approached a gentleman and begged for R2 to buy something to eat
- She got more than what she bargained for as the man took her on a shopping spree
- The kind man was none other than regular philanthropist BI Phakathi
A video circulating through social media has had a profound impact on South Africans.
The footage reveals how a poor woman approaches a man for R2 to enable her to buy something to eat.
Little did she know that the gentleman was none other than regular philanthropist BI Phakathi.
Phakathi empathised with the woman's circumstances and the pair went on a shopping spree.
An endearing moment plays out as the woman displays a clear reluctance to waste Phakathi's money as she opts for the essentials.
Phakathi urges her to fill up her grocery baskets and she eventually leaves the store with numerous essentials and even a few luxury items.
Phakathi then proceeds to bless her with some cash for good measure.
The Good Samaritan shared the beautiful video via his Facebook page and Briefly.co.za noted that it went viral, attracting thousands of responses.
Amy Wb loved how the lady had a huge smile at the end:
"That smile! Makes her beautiful, it says more than a thousand “thank you”s."
Lani Royal said,
"BI Phakathi, I LIVE IN NEW ZEALAND, U ARE A BEAUTIFUL KIND SOUL THAT GOD WILL BLESS, I HAVE SEEN U MANY TIMES HELPiNg PPL, SENDING U LOTSA LOVE N BLESSINGS ALL THE WAY FROM CHRISTCHURCH, NEW ZEALAND."
Luz Lasanas Limon added:
