The Wider Image: Clowning is serious business for doctor to homeless in Brazil's 'crackland'
Jonatha de David Sousa Reis, 34, and Bruna Kelly Simoes, 26, wait for their mobile phones to charge at a Psychosocial Care Center near Princesa Isabel square, in an area known as "cracolandia," or crackland, a dangerous wasteland of about eight blocks in the historic center of Sao Paulo, Brazil, March 11, 2021. The homeless population has surged after 600 reais ($106.16) per month government emergency aid payments to the poor were reduced and eventually ran out at the end of 2020. After a delay in congressional approval, payments are set to resume this month at an even lower rate. For many, that help is too little, too late. Millions have sunk into poverty since the start of the year. For Reis and Simoes, that meant losing their home. The couple moved into a makeshift tent, strung between two trees, on a public square in crackland this year. "As long as there are no jobs, the emergency payment should have been maintained as it was," Reis said. "It's been difficult, very difficult," said Reis.
