In the video the woman, Naomi explains that she has been lucky enough to stay at a hotel due to the kindness of a woman working there. Normally she sleeps in her car.
She explains that she wants to get a job to provide for her family. The unnamed man reveals his name is Eric gave her $20 (R290) and after listening to her story he gave her a further $100 (R1460).
She broke down crying saying that she is scared explaining that people had tricked her in the past.
What happened next shocked her completely, he gave her another R290 and his card and offered her a job to help her get back on her feet.

He uploaded a video to Facebook which starts with a mad chase after a torn R10 note. He ended up blessing the man with over R1 000 after learning what happened to him.
He returns it to a homeless man called Basil and asked him what he wanted to do with the money. Basil revealed that he wanted to buy a cup of coffee with it. Phakathi gave Basil R100 and asked told him to buy a coffee and bring back his change.
