Crackolandias, relatively recent realities, are places where people use ckack meet and often live. Crack is a low cost drug that comes in the form of small stone and which generates an almost immediate dependence.

For several years now, Father Renato and the Casa do Menor have begun to look at this dramatic reality, and they go weekly, to the crackolandias located in the State of Rio de Janeiro, especially in the areas of Manguinhos and Jacarezinho. Volunteer groups, along with some priests and nuns working in these areas, prepare sandwiches and drinks and try to bring some ‘temporary relief” to those who consume this substance.
