A 55-year-old man who has lived under bridge for nearly eight years turned a dumping site near his dwelling place into paradise.

Cecil Mcdoyi, a homeless man from Cape Town, South Africa, took note of filthy garbage that was piling up close to Wetton train station where he lived and decided to do something about it.

“When I came here, this was a dumping site. People could not even walk around here. I decided to clean it up and now its a garden ,” Mcdoyi disclosed to Daily Voice.

Mcdoyi removed the rubbish heap, dug holes, buried dirt and and started planting flowers in the area. It took him a year to clean up the mess. And that was not all.

"I went further to erect a bench and a table and create a pathway to walk on as well as 'some artworks', which I made using stones," he says.
