- BI then takes the homeless man to go and buy some food and the video received thousands of reactions
BI Phakathi has quickly become a faceless hero here in South Africa. When he is not blessing homeless children and giving old ladies money for groceries, he is putting a smile on thousands of South Africans' faces who thoroughly enjoy watching him make a difference.
In his latest act of kindness, BI shared a video in which a homeless man can be seen eating food from a busy street floor. The man behind the camera, who we have come to know as BI, approaches the homeless man to ask him if he would like to go and buy food.
The two then enter a local restaurant where the staff try and chase the homeless man away. BI quickly explains that the two of them are together. Once seated, the old man can be seen enjoying his meal while he and BI have a light-hearted conversation, during which BI tells the man he is his new family.
This is after the man, whose last name is Govender, explains that he lost contact with his family after a lot of "family disputes". After their brief conversation, BI proceeds to hand the man an undisclosed amount of money.
The touching video was at the receiving end of nearly 27 000 reactions from fans of BI who seem to find joy in watching the man do his bit to change the world, one good deed at a time. Read some of their comments below.

"You did a beautiful thing for this man, dear bro BI. You restored his dignity in being able to sit, enjoy his food in the restaurant. You were gentle and kind. God bless you to touch many more hearts!"
Sheila Paren said:
"It’s really sad to see that some people can quickly judge you because of the way you look and will treat you like a trash, not even like a human. Thank you, Mr BI Phakathi though for helping out the people in need and standing up for them. May God bless you more!"
