Helping those in need

According to the World Bank, about 8.6% of the world’s population lives in extreme poverty. That equates to about 28 million people.

According to UCL, volunteering your time, money, or energy to help others doesn't just make the world better—it also makes you better. Studies indicate that giving back to the community boosts your happiness, health, and sense of well-being. Perhaps this could explain why Phakathi is such a cheerful giver.
