  • Possibly (good) Samaritan. – Steve Lovell Jun 23 '17 at 6:23
  • Why, please? Prolly the only words that might fit your actual question would be beneficence or serendipity. However, in my view your three examples have nothing in common other than the word assistance, which they seem so disparate as to make irrelevant. – Robbie Goodwin Jun 24 '17 at 21:41
