More than 40 million Brazilians live in housing that suffers from residual damp, mold, and poor ventilation, all factors that contribute to serious public health problems. Jardim Pantanal is a poor community, in the East Zone of São Paulo built on wetland at the edge of the city. High humidity and frequent flooding mean many residents live in housing that is permanently damp and in constant need of repair.Founded in 2014 Moradigna provides building and renovation services to low-income households in Jardim Pantanal, helping residents improve their living environment and their health.
