PUNK 4 THE HOMELESS
P4TH exists to promote awareness and raise dosh for those who need it most. Alongside this we have a great time in the punk rock family. Most of the work done so far has been for the benefit of street children and we have helped:
Compass Children’s Charity (RCN 1073903)
to do this this.
Compass Children’s Charity is an international, non-governmental organisation dedicated to the rehabilitation and defence of street children in Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico and Guatemala.We work with approximatley 10,000 street children a year most of whom have been orphaned, abused or abandoned and are further traumatised by the indifference of the societies in which they live.
Founded in 1981 in an uncompromising environment of violent conflict and intolerable human rights abuses rampant in Latin America in the early 1980s, Casa Alianza has grown from a refuge for displaced Guatemalan children into an international award-winning organisation working on behalf of street children.
We offer street children shelter, food, medical care, protection, guidance, respect and love. Casa Alianza began as a place where forgotten children could escape from loneliness, hunger, drugs, poverty, sexual exploitation, trafficking, emotional starvation, physical abuse and extreem violence. Thirty years later, our work continues but we have grown to become a lot more. Casa Alianza actively defends children’s rights and has become the leading advocacy agency for children at risk in the America’s with the support of Covenant House.
In addition to the four programme offices in Latin America, three offices in Europe (Germany, Switzerland and the UK) support Casa Alianza programmes and campaigns. We have an anti prejudice stance in race, sex, sexuality, faith etc. etc.etc.
