Pope Francis opens free laundromat for people in need in Rome

VATICAN CITY, Rome (WABC) -- Pope Francis has opened a free laundromat for people in need in Rome.

The facility offers washers, dryers, and irons that have been donated.

The Vatican says it plans to add showers, a barbershop, and medical services in the coming months.

Pope Francis also opened a shower and barber service near Saint Peter's Basilica just two years ago.

The Vatican says the new facility will help restore dignity to many people. null
