A campaign donation of food and basic products that is backed by football player Neymar is helping favela inhabitants in Sao Paulo amid the coronavirus pandemic.
In the neighbourhood of Jardim Pery Alto, people were seen filling sheets and queuing up to get food and basic products like soap and toilet paper on Thursday.
“The support we are getting from public figures, artists, football players I hope will increase. Our people really need food,” said Angela, a coordinator for a local franciscan association.
“I am so thankful for this food, it helps a lot. I am so thankful to Neymar,” said a local after picking up goods.
