As luck would have it, well-known Good Samaritan Bi Phakathi saw this and stepped in to save the day.

Phakathi offered the man a delightful meal and they proceeded to a popular fast-food franchise.
The hungry man's plight was summarised in one moment, when one of the staff members prohibited him from entering the establishment.
He revealed to Phakathi that he's been having to fend for himself on the street. Phakathi was so touched by his situation, that he gave the man a considerable amount of cash.
Yet again, Phakathi shared the heartwarming encounter via Facebook and Briefly.co.za noted that it went viral.

Princess Victoria Samushonga said,
"I just broke down and cried when I saw on the video the part where he was moving somewhere and he got blocked by someone until you came and said I am the one buying him food. For me it was just so painful to imagine how he might have felt being treated like that. Can people understand that it's possible for a person to be dirty but also having a few cents in his pocket to buy himself a little nice food once in a while."
Glenda Morales added,
"Your such a great person BI i always follow and watch your video more blessings to come to you so u can help more unfornate person God bless."
Mpho Kolobe said,
"Sometimes we say we are struggling, but there's people out there who dnt even have a meal for a day. Let us all appreciate the little we get. May the lord bless you more BI."
