Solánge Bezerra: Help for Brazilian street children

In the Brazilian coastal city of Recife, hundreds of children are forced to live on the streets. They get little sleep and live among the dirt and the vermin. They are constantly on the run from paramilitary groups who harass the children or brutally murder them. Solánge Bezerra and her aid organization, "Grupo Ruas e Praças", want to give the children a place to rest, recover and play.
