The BM in Salvador helps poor people get food, clothing, shoes and medicine. Soup and bread are brought to the poor on a weekly basis. The BM volunteers also visit sick people at the hospitals. They even managed to buy a small house for a lady who collects and sells garbage for a living. Clothes are given to needy babies and the Catechism is taught to children (2-10 years old) and teenagers (11-17 years old) once a week.
