Another project I was privileged to work with while in Brazil, was Casa de Santa Ana in Cidade de Deus, or City of God as the community became known throughout Europe and the USA after the success of the movie City of God that left most of the world believing that City of God was a place of young people, drug lords, drugs, parties and sex.
Casa de Santa Ana is a day centre for the elderly buzzing with activities. The house offers medical support, activities, food, and a space where people can meet, be together and feel at home. I visited Casa de Santa Ana several times over a period of 2 months.
