Father Renato Chiera says: “The Crackolandia (the crack scene) is a mirror and the result of a completely destroyed society that is losing its connections and essential values.” The minister has been visiting drug addicts for 5 years in the metropolis Rio in Brazil and is taking his time for their worries and hardship/ dedicates his time to helping those experiencing worry and hardship.

According to Father Renato Chiera, the most concerning development is the phenomenon of children growing up here, with drug addicted families, at the margins of society. He is wondering what will happen to them/ Better: He wonders what will become of them.
