A kind young man is being lauded on social media after he gave his new shoes to a woman who was begging on the side of the road. Keanu De Sousa told the woman that he didn't have money but that he could give her his shoes.
Daniel Phaladi shared this beautiful story as well as an image of the young man to Facebook. Daniel said he went over to speak to Keanu, who was already on his way home to his mom in his socks. Daniel offered Keanu R1 000 but the young man refused.
The only thing Keanu accepted was a lift home from Daniel so he wasn't walking without shoes. Daniel's post received tons of love from South African Facebook users and Keanu commented, thanking everyone for their love and kind messages.
Take a look at Daniel's original post below:
Here's what some Facebook users had to say to Keanu.
Tsholofelo Kgomongwe wrote:
"These are testimonies that usually make me shed a tear. God has multiplied blessings upon that young man and his family even for generations to come."
Boithuti Maphokga-fanqa said:
"Woooow, he knows and understands the principle of giving."
Reuben Masoga commented:
"I was feeling sad today, this man just inspired me. Thanks Keanu."
In two separate comments, Keanu responded to all the lovely messages with:
"May God bless all of you amazing people, I know I may not know all of you but all of you are family to me."
"Wow guys thanks so much I am praying for all of you beautiful people."
In other news about good Samaritans, YEN.com.gh recently reported on a homeless couple in Cape Town who were able to have their dream wedding. Lockdown has been a hard time for everyone in South Africa but it surely was even harder on those who are less fortunate.
Those who are homeless have to endure harassment from the authorities and also have to fight hunger. However, newlyweds Daniel and Amber Kepkey weathered the storm. Last week, the two lovebirds got married in their dream wedding thanks to a community worker, Dawn Roode, who set the whole thing up.
A number of people who are homeless and good Samaritans gathered at Roode's home in Kuils River to celebrate the union between Daniel and Amber. This took place after the two sealed their marriage at the Bellville Magistrate's Court.
