On Wednesday, a beautiful social media user, Zhandelee Vic Botha, took to the Vanderbijlpark Ads Facebook group to share an inspiring story.

Botha revealed a homeless man visits 'neat' parts of Vanderbijlpark every day. However, instead of begging passersby for money, the man identifies spots that need work and he cleans them up.

On Wednesday, Botha spotted the man near 'Stonehaven Brug' where he swept clean the drains and weeded the pavement.

Botha revealed on other days, the man would fill up potholes with sand or he would sweep the roads clean.

She revealed the homeless man moves around with his "house" - which is a trolley filled with various items, including the equipment he needs to clean, bottles of water, two blankets, a pillow and some warm clothes.

"It has been half a day and not once did I see him take a sip of water," Botha wrote in Afrikaans.

Botha added the man continued with his 'work' and never let anyone feel bad if they did not have money to give him.

She revealed he would answer, "God will provide" every time someone did not have R2 to give him.

Botha's story inspired social media users and they came together to bless the unidentified man.

She shared a photo of food and money that a couple of women donated to help the man.

Botha captioned the post in Afrikaans: "Thank you to all the ladies who made it possible for this man tonight! (Baie dankie vir die dames wat dit moontlik gemaak het vir die man vanaand!)"
