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 on Facebook. Daniel offered Keanu R1,000 (N23,246.20) but the young man refused.
The only thing Keanu accepted was a lift home from Daniel so he wouldn't be 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.

"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."

In other news, BI Phakathi has quickly become a faceless hero in South Africa. When he is not blessing homeless children and giving old ladies money for groceries, he is putting a smile on thousands of South Africans' faces who thoroughly enjoy watching him make a difference.
In his latest act of kindness, BI shared a video in which a homeless man could be seen eating food from a busy street floor. The man behind the camera, who we have come to know as BI, approaches the homeless man to ask him if he would like to go and buy food.
