Portable sinks are being installed across the United States as a means of helping homeless people wash their hands amidst the novel coronavirus outbreaks.

Over the course of the last two months, Love Beyond Walls—a Georgia-based nonprofit dedicated to helping the homeless—has been setting up dozens of hand-washing stations in areas popularly visited by rough sleepers.

Terence Lester, the nonprofit’s founder, told News Chain that he started their “Love Sinks In” campaign with the hopes of supporting neglected people living in poverty during the pandemic.

“People would say things like ‘I’m fearing I’ll contract the coronavirus because I have nowhere to wash my hands’,” said Lester.

Thankfully, the group has been able to scale up their operations thanks to their support from Grammy award-winning hip hop artist Lecrae, who is also a friend of Lester’s.

Since Lecrae joined forced with the organization in March, several dozen sinks have been installed across the city of Atlanta, all of which are sanitized three times a day.

Love Beyond Walls has also teamed up with other homeless charities to install sinks in Birmingham, Austin, Columbus, San Bernardino, New Orleans, Baltimore, and New York City.

The organization says that they hope to install as many sinks as possible over the course of the next two to three months.
