Company Charity – Street Children in South America
South America has many very poor areas, and we have a long and close relationship with a charity called “Let the Children Live” based in Medellin, Colombia. Let the Children Live is an established and successful charity working with marginalised children and families. It has been active for nearly 20 years, since 1995.
The charity has many active programs and actively works to bring social change as well as supporting children with critical needs. Their programmes include active outreach to street children, to children who live at home and work on the street, medical and social support for pregnant and young mothers and their children, support for local communities where possible, and an award winning children’s choir.
Life on the streets in Colombia is very tough and there are many compelling stories of the amazing differences these people have made in the community and the city. Many staff have been with them for 10 or more years and the charity operates a number of properties and around 15 programmes.
Brian travels to Colombia regularly to visit the charity and we support them financially as well as sponsoring their web hosting and development needs.
For more information visit www.letthechildrenlive.org. Online donations are always welcome.
We also sponsor a number of websites from around the world, covering varying topics. Here’s a partial list:
- www.ownlife.com.au – Richard Flude and team’s outreach to skateboarders and youth in Melbourne and worldwide.
- www.cibf.org.au – Cinema Industry Benevolent Fund – an industry fund supporting cinema exhibitors who have fallen on unfortunate circumstances
- www.niim.com.au – a health research group combining conventional medicine with the latest nutritional and complementary medicine
- www.liamscheff.com – a progressive journalism site writing and researching on health and related issues from very non-conventional angles
We’re honoured and privileged to be associated with the sites shown above; each making a difference in its own way.
For a variety of reasons, not all the sites we sponsor are listed here. If you feel your project might be a worthy cause, please contact us with detailed information about your project.
If your site is working with the poor or disadvantaged, contact us to discuss potential sponsorship.
Our Webhosting industry input
Like most established webhosting companies, several of us are active in internet forums advocating security and other best practice.
We run the popular sysadmin technical tips site at www.whmscripts.net which provides scripts for maintaining server security and stability to others in the webhosting community.
