Among the citizens of Santiago, Chile lives a true superhero – “Solidarity Batman”. However, he is far from his act as a fictional crime-solver, serving as a hunger fighter who visits the homeless population regularly to distribute food.
With his white SUV, which is fully stocked with hot meals, he wears a shiny black costume complete with a cape and two masks (one with pointy comic book ears and eye slots, while the other is for COVID-19 protection).
The “Solidarity Batman”, as he calls himself is doing his best to ensure the quality of life of people living in Chile during the long lockdown is more bearable, especially for those that were totally hit by the pandemic.
The do-good mission of this Batman is more than just delivering food. He knows quite well that a few kind words will go a long way to nourish the soul, he strives hard to feed the hearts of people, coupled with filling up their stomach.
His choice of the Batman outfit was to cheer up the people, as it ensures a feeling of togetherness. In an interview with Reuters, he said:
Look around you, see if you can dedicate a little time, a little food, a little shelter, a word sometimes of encouragement to those who need it.Solidarity Batman
No matter who the man wearing the mask is, he has a very strong message added to his meal delivery.
