Phinius Sebatsane took to his Facebook to share an amazing interaction with a homeless man he calls "Uncle Calvin". According to Phinius, Calvin had been smeared with paint by some terrible people on Guy Fawkes, 5 November.

Calvin's hair and beard were covered in crusty paint and he was begging for money for a haircut. Phinius offered to cut Calvin's hair and he agreed. After the haircut, he handed a mirror to Calvin so he could have a good look at himself. He looked very sad and Phinius asked why, to which he responded:

"I haven't looked at myself like this in 20 years." Phinius says Calvin stands and begs at a robot in Parkwood, Western Cape.

According to the post, her husband, Poovan Bruce Govender, is a very humble man who goes out of his way to help others - even if that means using the little he has to do so. In the post, she also mentions a number of the things her man has done which have left her completely in awe.

"He has done many good deeds over his life thus far. In fact I married him because on our first date he bought a piece of KFC for a stray cat. When I looked at his phone, he donated money to the blind dogs association every month."
