In the most recent BI Phakathi Facebook upload, we see BI approaching a homeless man who has no family. The two exchange pleasantries and the man is thrilled when he finds out that he has some new clothes. Without family, he has nowhere to go, but this act of kindness will keep him warm and fed for weeks to come.
Helping the differently-abled
The next video is one that went super viral with over 34 million views; it is guaranteed to have you tearing up. He comes across a family that has a differently-abled son. He talks to them, realises they need some supplies for their son. As a surprise, he also gets the boy a new wheelchair.
Assisting a rich man who looks homeless
This one was quite surprising. The tables turned on South African hero BI when he approached a man who looks homeless. It turns out this guy does not need any help! He is just seated on the pavement, looking haggard because, despite all the money he has, he is distraught.
His child and grandchild both have cancer, and worrying about them wears him down. Watch the video for a lovely surprise at the end. It is clear that BI helped him out and gave him hope.
BI Phakathi orphan boy
On seeing a young man struggle carrying wood on the side of the road, BI is compelled to go and help him out. The young man says that he does that to get some food, and he has no family. In his spirit of giving, BI hands him some cash and tells him to be safe.
