SANTIAGO (Reuters) – A complete stranger camouflaged as Batman is lurking the streets of Santiago delivering food to the homeless, providing nourishment and light-hearted solace to those in requirement following months of lockdown in the Chilean capital.
The man, who wears a glossy batman suit total with a coronavirus-ready sanitary facemask, delivers a couple of dozen plates of hot food to homeless individuals throughout the South American capital on a regular basis.
He said he chooses not to be determined.
” Take a look around you, see if you can commit a little time, a little food, a little shelter, a word often of motivation to those who need it”, he stated, adding the disguise was suggested to bring great cheer and unite.
Limitations intended at stemming the spread of coronavirus have ravaged Chile’s economy. Unemployment has sky soared to over 12%in Chile, breaking a decade-long record, and much of the capital Santiago continues to run at half mast.
And in spite of the Batman fit, Simon Salvador, one of the receivers, stated the true sentiment was clear.
” It is appreciated … from one human to another,” Salvador said.
