- #SDG6: Clean Water and Sanitation - 06 days to Rio 2016 (português abaixo) "Once I saw in the newspaper a story that spoke that the dirtiest community of Rio de Janeiro was mine. It was when I dropped everything and went to work with recycling. There was a time when I took food from trash to home and my brother ate without knowing. We had to feed us. Faced all kinds of difficulty carrying a lot of weight, people criticized me, the drug dealers wanted my land. I still continued and gather all: cans, PET bottles, plastic bags, cooking oil ... I would be sad if I die now because I have a lot to do yet, but I'm not afraid to continue my work. History is made by those who move on. I think a person changes the other, who changes the other, who changes the other - is a flow. If I can change a person, I can also change the world." – Leandro Abrantes, 33 years old ---- #ODS6: Água Potável e Saneamento - Contagem regressiva para Rio 06 dias! "Uma vez, vi no jornal uma matéria que falava que a comunidade mais suja do Rio de Janeiro era a minha. Foi quando larguei tudo e fui trabalhar com reciclagem. Teve uma época em que eu levava comida do lixo para casa e meu irmão comia sem nem saber. Precisávamos nos alimentar. Enfrentei todo o tipo de dificuldade: carregava muito peso, as pessoas me criticavam, o tráfico queria o meu terreno. Mesmo assim continuei e recolho de tudo: latas, garrafas PET, sacolas de plástico, óleo de cozinha... Eu ficaria triste se morresse agora porque tenho muita coisa para fazer ainda, mas não tenho medo de continuar o meu trabalho. A história é feita por aqueles que seguem em frente. Penso que uma pessoa muda a outra, que muda a outra, que muda a outra – é uma corrente. Se eu consigo mudar uma pessoa, posso também mudar o mundo." – Leandro Abrantes, 33 anos #humansofrio #humansofmyworld #rio2016 #reciclagem #cantagalo PNUD Brasil UNDP in Latin America and the Caribbean United Nations Development Programme - UNDP ONU Brasil SDG Action Campaign 7 hours ago
