South Africa’s selfless do-gooder BI Pakathi has once again managed to light up the world of someone deeply in need. In a recent clip which he shared on Facebook, Phakathi can be seen helping out a homeless man called Raja and has once again received high praise from local and international fans of his work.

BI Phakathi changes a man’s life

On Saturday 1 October, local philanthropist BI Pakathi helped to set a man’s life back on track after spotting him begging in the streets. In a clip that he shared on his popular Facebook page, the homeless man explains that his name is Raja.

After hearing that Raja had not had anything to eat, BI offered to buy him some food and give him some money to travel back to Durban where he comes from while the two of them had a chat about what Raja’s hopes and dreams are.

He then explained to Phakathi that he would love to open a spaza shop – something BI loved to hear. Not long after hearing about Raja’s spaza shop dreams, BI sent him R10 000 to help him fulfill this dream.

Naturally, Raja could not believe his luck and expressed his gratitude to a humbled Phakathi.
