“It is the most rewarding thing you can do in life,” says Michael Sean Wright, founder of Wound Walk OC, describing the work he does tending to the medical needs of homeless people. “When we get a nick or scrape, we can wash it. A nick or scrape for a homeless person can turn into something no one should have to deal with.” With no one out tending to the homeless during the pandemic, Wright and his neighbors and friends decided to increase their capabilities and brought hand-washing stations to the homeless. According to Wright, “We all have something we can do and are good at. This problem isn’t going away unless we step up and we do something. It’s not up to someone else. It’s up to us.”
