A woman was walking through a neighbourhood begging for food when a Good Samaritan stopped her. She explained that she did not work and needed to survive. The man decided to help her with food parcels and some money.

BI Phakathi shared the video of his kind act on his Facebook page. The woman, named Monique, explained that she lived with elderly people who help her. They, however, no longer work and as a result, they have no food or electricity in the house. Phakathi gave the grateful woman food parcels. He then handed her his wallet and told her to take how much she needed. The shocked lady only took R100, causing Phakathi to take out more money for her.

Social media users were inspired by the kind deed. Nontobeko Mathe said:

"My wish is to meet face to face with God and asked to give this man of God a long life, so that he can continuing helping those who need help. Sometimes we throw food, clothes without thinking there are some people who need help. Thank you, may God keeps you alive always."

Chantel Correia Myburgh said:

"May God bless you and this lady. She also came to my house with the same clothes on this weekend. She asked for food and we gave her what we can. Shame she even told me God blessed her. Yes indeed and God will continue to bless her."

Taryn Chase Hensberg said:

"You are an amazing, caring angel from up above. I just love how you help your community. It's so special & I pray that God blesses you abundantly."
