Let me tell you about my friend Washington.
Washington is a homeless man who lives on the street nearby my house. He does not have the use of his legs and is confined to a wheelchair. His eyes don't work very well and neither do his ears.
He sits outside a bakery all day relying on the kindness of strangers in order to survive. When I walk past him he always asks me how much money he has in his hand since his eyes don't work very well.
Today I stopped to talk to him and helped him buy a cold beverage. He asked me to move him into the shade and I realized that his wheelchair is going to break any day now. When it does he will be stuck on the cold hard ground
A new wheelchair will cost R$640 which is about $320. Any amount you can give will be appreciated. Any amount that we raise above $320 will be used to buy things that make Washington more comfortable.
