Poor Brazilian man suffering from Alzheimer's in a Favela.

I had the pleasure of getting together with the Spiritist community in Cascavel, Brazil. Every two days of the week, we would go where the Favelas were and sang music, read stories, brought shelter and visited the community that lived there. This man was one of the people that impacted me the most. He is suffering from alzheimer's and his sister abandoned him in the Favelas. He still talks to his long-deceased wife in present tense.

Location: Cascavel, Brazil
