In more news about charity from Briefly News, BI Phakathi, South Africa's very own good Samaritan, is at it again helping those who are less fortunate. He uploaded a video to Facebook which starts with a mad chase after a torn R10 note. He ended up blessing the man with over R1 000 after learning what happened to him.
He returns it to a homeless man called Basil and asked him what he wanted to do with the money. Basil revealed that he wanted to buy a cup of coffee with it. Phakathi gave Basil R100 and asked told him to buy a coffee and bring back his change.
Basil returned with the coffee but said he had to use the last of his coins as they did not have change for a R100 note.
Phakathi told Basil to keep the R100 and proceeded to give him a further R500 and told him to buy himself some food.
Basil protested that he was taking all his money, Phakathi told him not to worry and that it was his money now.
This is where the story takes a different turn. It turns out Basil has been injured and needed to see a doctor. Phakathi inspected his wounds and gave him another R500 to see a doctor.
A truly amazing story of how BI Phakathi has helped another honest person living on the streets.
