People in the favelas have homes but struggle to have adequate sanitation. This quickly foldable solar bath is an efficient way to collect rainwater and heat water. In addition, a residential area with limited space can also provide people with individual independent shower rooms, with an umbrella structure and a foldable shower curtain forming a set of independent shower rooms, which maximizes the design of the favela for hot water bathing, space and rainwater collection for reuse. Use hot and cold alternating principle. Give everyone below the poverty line the right to a nice bath.
