A mobile service center for Bogota's homeless is providing free showers, clean clothes and food to some of the estimated 9,000 people who live in the streets of this Colombian city of 8 million.
The program launched by the mayor's office also offers free haircuts, shaves and even vaccinations from a large metal container on wheels outfitted with numerous shower stalls where homeless women and men can bathe separately. Program participants are provided with soap, shampoo and towels.
Services are now offered weekly and officials hope to eventually provide them daily, officials say.
