SÃO PAULO, BRAZIL - An act of solidarity has been warming up the winter of street dwellers in Praia Grande in São Paulo State. A bathing truck runs through the city's neighborhoods with heated water and clean clothes for those suffering from the low temperatures. Volunteers from one of the city's parishes developed the initiative.
The "Amigos do Banho" project began in late 2017 but was inaugurated in November 2018. Since then, the truck has been running through neighborhoods in the city every Wednesday. This initiative can provide approximately 30 shower baths per day with heated water . . .
