ROME — Pope Francis has opened a free laundromat for people in need in Rome.
The facility has washers, dryers and irons that have been donated.
In the coming months, the Vatican plans to add showers, a barbershop and medical services.
This is the second facility that Francis has opened to help the poor in Rome.
He opened a shower and barber service near Saint Peter’s Basilica two years ago.
The Vatican says the new facility will help restore dignity to many people.
