Shuá / Service concept


Bathing is important for human dignity. That is why we seek to promote human dignity through access to drinking water and basic sanitation with a focus on homeless people in the city of Belo Horizonte (BH), Brazil. It encourages the social participation of the population and provides greater empathy and visibility to people living on the streets.

BH has a total of more than 14 thousand people living in extreme vulnerability. That is why our project seeks to create a public space that is capable of offering both a basic service for human well-being and provoking a reflection on the vulnerability of people in our city.

Thus “Shuá” is born.
