A social media user, Manchilla Mella, shared an inspiring story on the Facebook page 'Upington help mekaar' about how she touched the life of a man she saw digging through smelly garbage.
Manchilla Mella, took to social media to share a heart warming story about how she impacted the life of a man rummaging through a garbage bin by taking him to shopping.
Mella wrote, she walked past a woman, who has been identified as Beverly, and a man in Ackermans.
YEN.com.gh learned Beverly asked the manager if the man could change into the clothes she bought him in the store's fitting rooms.
The manager took the man to the fitting rooms and after a while they both returned with the young man gushing about in his new outfit.
According to Mella, the man said he looks like Chris Brown in the new threads and he was very happy.
Mella then asked Beverly if she and the man were family and her answer warmed Mzansi's hearts.
"I saw him rummaging through a garbage bin this morning and saw how he was chewing on bones," Beverly said.
She added she asked herself if God did not send the man on her path to help him. Beverly took the man with her to Ackermans where she bought him clothes.
She then bought him something to eat and on Tuesday she'll give him a blanket.
"Let us thank Beverly for her beautiful heart and hope that she's blessed beyond measure," Mella wrote in the Facebook post.
