Bracing the cold, the man, identified as Suleman Khan, not only rescued several passengers by driving them to safety in his own car, but in a gesture of kindness that has touched the hearts of many across the nation, also opened his home to them for food and shelter.

whats is the interpretation of underlined words. Bracing the cold mean is strengthen the cool ?

It may be a typo. It probably should be Braving the cold, meaning that he went out even though the cold conditions made it unpleasant and dangerous.

You can brace against the cold, meaning to prepare to face it with courage and determination, but the sentence would then be Bracing himself against the cold.... I think the first version is more likely to be what the writer intended, though.
