A well-known philanthropist who goes by the name Bi Phakhati has once again lent a helping hand to a man that has been living on the streets.
Phakhati recently found a homeless man sitting by the curb near a shop and asked him what he should get for him. The man replied by saying that he was fine with anything Phakhati had to offer.
Phakhati asked the man where he lived and what he usually eats and the homeless man said that he had been living on the streets since his family died. Moved by the man's story Phakhati bought a loaf of bread and a bottle of a cold drink for him.
The homeless man was grateful and thanked Phakhati and asked God to bless the good samaritan.

Bi Phakhati helps the homeless man start a business
The good-natured philanthropist decided that he was not going to just stop at buying the homeless man food but would help him launch his own business.
Phakhati asked the homeless man to follow him to his car and he gave three big bags of chips with at least 50 packets to sell each packet at R2. He advised the man to use the profits he makes to buy more stock so he can sell more.
Phakhati then gave the homeless man close to R800 to clean himself up and buy himself clothes and shoes. Phakhati told him that he hopes he doesn't use the money on drugs.
Touched by Phakhati's actions, the homeless said, "I know God sent you."

BI Phakathi helps another pure soul in need, Mzansi stans
Briefly News previously reported that a good samaritan shared with his 6.3 million Facebook followers the act of charity of helping a fellow Saffa in need with the hopes of inspiring the nation.
BI Phakathi, a motivational speaker, filmmaker and life coach, came across a stranger that we later learned was named Sipho who collected recyclable materials to sell for him to survive the hardships of living on the streets.
Sipho was walking along the roadside when Phakathi asked how he was and what he was doing to which Sipho said with an ear-to-ear smile that he was good, however, he went into brief detail about him being homeless and hungry.
