- A Good Samaritan paid a visit to an area frequented by some homeless people living under a bridge
- He asked how they were doing and how they got by during these challenging times
- One homeless man ended up receiving around R1 000 from the generous man
A Good Samaritan who goes by the Facebook handle of BI Phakathi paid a visit to a group of homeless people who live under a bridge. There was only one man from the group there who he spoke to.
He asked how the current situation with the lockdown was affecting him and his answer was vague.
His next question made the situation more clear.
"Did you eat today?"
To which the man answered - "Nothing." BI further enquired how they were getting food.
"We make a plan, help people here and there."
The generous man offered the homeless man a R200 note, which he accepted with gratitude, then gave him more money. He was taken back and gave him a hug. Phakathi then ended up giving the man around R1 000.
The homeless man said that he and his friends normally have to get by on R200 to R250 a week, buying mealie meal and the basics.
You could tell that Phakathi had really shocked the man with his generosity.
