AMCD Calls on Trump to Press Erdogan on ISIS Murder of Priest in NE Syria

Father Hovsep Bedoyan

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, November 13, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On President Erdogan’s visit to the White House today, the American Mideast Coalition for Democracy (AMCD) is urging president Trump to forcefully bring up the murder of Armenian Catholic Father Hovsep Bedoyan and his father in Northeast Syria – the area from which US forces withdrew allowing Turkey to invade.

“President Erdogan assured the US that Turkey would prevent any ISIS resurgence in the area,” said AMCD co-chair Tom Harb. “So Turkey must be held ultimately responsible for this horrific murder for which ISIS has claimed responsibility.”

It has long been suspected that Turkey actually aided ISIS in Syria (both by allowing ISIS fighters transit over Turkish soil, and by indirectly supplying arms). Indeed the Muslim Brotherhood-allied militias operating under Turkish auspices differ little from ISIS in terms of ideology.

“President Trump must insist on the protection of minorities in what is now Turkish-controlled territory in Northeastern Syria,” stated AMCD co-chair, John Hajjar. “The murder of this innocent priest cannot be swept under the carpet of major power politics.”

Chaplin Theatre

Chaplin Theatre

20 Percent of funds raised for the premiere will be donated to aid sexual assault survivors. Director urges individuals and corporations to support the cause.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, November 13, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — 

The Origins Multi Award winning short film Cigarettes in December will premiere next month at the Chaplin Theatre in Raleigh Studios on the night of December 13. The exclusive invite only event will be attended by some top industry professionals and will see Origins Productions step into the limelight publicly for the first time.



Origins Productions, known for their unorthodox use of AI-assisted film-making are presently raising additional funding for the event and will be donating 20 percent of all proceeds from the premiere to the aid of sexual assault survivors to RAINN (rape, abuse and incest national network). RAINN is America’s largest anti sexual violence organisation.



The 23 minute film that has won Best Drama at Los Angeles Film Awards among other festivals shines a light on the trauma of a sexual assault survivor through the character of Russ portrayed by multi award winning Indian American actor Divyansh Sharma. The Chaplin Theatre boasts an impressive 160 seats and is perhaps a fitting theatre for the young Indian American who wrote, co-directed, acted and edited the film himself.

Sharma who also won a Best Actor award for his performance in the film from Los Angeles Film Awards urges big studios, individuals and corporations to reach out and contribute to the cause. “All of us really become artists to affect a change in the world. In a town like Los Angeles that lives and breathes artists and film lovers I cannot think of a better cause for the artistic community to contribute to.”



The event will see the premiere followed by a Q and A with the cast and crew along with a reception. While many big hitters are in talks with Origins Productions to co sponsor the event. Origins Productions are still welcoming all and every organisation to be a part of this exclusive event to contribute to the significant cause.

For any interested in supporting the cause. They can reach out to Origins Productions at their official email origins@originsprs.com . For more information about the film , follow the film journey here.

HIP Video Promo presents: The Phoenix Rose release compelling ‘Planet’ music video on Medium

The Phoenix Rose

The message couldn't be more explicit: treat this beautiful planet well, because it's the only one we've got.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, November 13, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Watch the "Planet" music video by The Phoenix Rose on Medium

A single image can have profound consequences. The modern ecological movement, for instance, was kicked into overdrive by the famous "blue marble" shot of the Earth taken from Apollo 17 in 1972. It was the first moment when millions of ordinary people put the planet in its proper cosmic perspective. We saw a planet that was beautiful and fragile, and alone in the deep and impersonal void of space. Since then, those of us who are committed to preserving the integrity of the environment have often used images to reinforce that lesson we were all taught by the Apollo program.

Jarvis Smith of The Phoenix Rose is one of those true believers in ecological necessity, and his gorgeous clip for "Planet," his latest single, is a paean to the Earth. Smith has decorated his video with shots of our blue marble in all its natural grandeur – shots of the oceans, the polar ice caps, the deserts, the forests, and the plains. The message couldn't be more explicit: treat this beautiful planet well, because it's the only one we've got.

Smith and The Phoenix Rose has matched this timely clip with a song that highlights everything that the band does well. Smith makes music that's every bit as passionate and charged as his advocacy – music that boldly builds bridges between cultures and styles with an audacious fusion of classic rock, funk, and reggae. This time around, he's had some help from a prominent source who knows a thing or two about breaking down barriers: the Jamaican-born singer and guitarist Junior Marvin, a prominent collaborator with Bob Marley and one of the surviving members of the Wailers. In addition to his work with Jamaica's first musical family, Marvin has brought his distinctive fire to recordings by Burning Spear, Lenny Kravitz, Steve Winwood, Toots & The Maytals, and many other first-rate artists. On "Planet," his performance is especially searing, and within seconds, it's clear that he's animated by the same sense of moral responsibility that drives Jarvis Smith.

Smith's activism extends to his purchasing decisions, and he encourages concerned listeners to follow suit. The clip for "Planet" directs viewers to a link for mygreenpod.com, a retailer specializing in ethical alternatives to corporate products. Jarvis Smith started mygreenpod with his wife Katie Hill; together, they've been a force for the green transformation of commerce on the internet. He's not content to sing about consciousness-raising and leave it at that – this musician is determined to act on his principles.

All sales and streaming proceeds from “Planet” will be donated to plant trees, to help rebalance and regenerate the planet.

Our ‘Fight For Kids: Childhood is Not a Mental Disorder’ campaign is aimed at protecting children and families, including providing free information.”

— Frederick Shaw, a spokesperson for CCHR International

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, November 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The innovative website resource for parents faced with children labeled with a “mental” or “learning disorder,” provides them with facts about adverse effects of treatments being recommended to minors. Recognizing that parents and other caregivers often have to sift through considerable misinformation about mental health treatment to get facts about potential risks, the “Fight for Kids” (FFK) website, produced by the mental health watchdog Citizens Commission on Human Rights International (CCHR), has streamlined this, providing a definitive resource that cuts to the chase when it comes to drug and other treatment damaging effects.

The FFK site is aimed at helping parents and caregivers access information to be able to make educated choices about a child’s healthcare needs—a “Know Your Rights” and Informed Consent platform that includes:

• How the disorders children are labeled with differ from medical diagnoses and practices;
• The psychotropic drugs most recommended and their side effects, some of which are highly addictive, leading to drug dependence;
• Statistics on psychiatric drug use;
• Legislation or legal safeguards that parents need to know in order to protect their children from forced psychiatric or psychological treatment; and
• The dangers of electroshock treatment that can be administered to children when the drugs “fail,” even to those aged five and younger, and why it should be banned.

Frederick Shaw, a spokesperson for CCHR International and former Los Angeles County Sheriff Deputy, who organized the Sheriff’s Youth Athletic League, says the site is also a resource for policy makers, educators and pediatricians and other family doctors concerned about the fact that in the millions of children and adolescents are recklessly prescribed potentially injurious psychotropic drugs.

FFK cites statistics from IQvia, a healthcare data source, revealing the breakdown of the 7,213,599 kids 0-17 year olds in the U.S. on psychiatric drugs:

0-1 Years 125,361
2-3 Years 202,319
4-5 Years 306,079
6-12 Years 3,259,955
13-17 Years 3,419,633

Of these:

• 3,655,472 were prescribed stimulants to treat “Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder”;
• 2,100,315 prescribed antidepressants, despite Food and Drug Administration Black Box warnings that the drugs may induce suicidal reactions;
• 1,194,805 prescribed antipsychotics; and
• 1,445,509 given anti-anxiety (sedative hypnotic) drugs

CCHR International says the drugs are being prescribed like candy, despite many of them scheduled by the Drug Enforcement Administration as high risk for abuse and addiction. The group says the FFK website is necessary because few parents know that psychiatric drugs are not like general medicine prescribed to treat physical diseases. There are no physical tests to confirm a psychiatric diagnosis which is based largely upon non-medical opinions about behavior.

Parents are not fully informed of drug risks, nor advised of non-harmful, medical and educational alternatives to address problems of attention, mood and behavior that won’t damage the developing brains and bodies of their children, CCHR says.

“Our ‘Fight For Kids: Childhood is Not a Mental Disorder’ campaign is aimed at protecting children and families, including providing free information through our website fightforkids.org,” Shaw added.

CCHR urges readers to support its Fight For Kids campaign. CCHR International has helped to obtain many of the laws cited on the website. You will be helping parents get the facts, know their rights, and most importantly, protect their children from harm, while also helping effect societal change in how we treat our children.

எந்த ஜனாதிபதி வேட்பாளருக்கு வாக்களிக்க வேண்டும் என்ற தமிழ்த் தேசியக் கூட்டமைப்பின் ஆலோசனையை தயவுசெய்து கேட்க வேண்டாம்.

கூட்டமைப்பின் நடவடிக்கைளை உற்று நோக்கும் போது, நாம் வடக்கில் சிறுபான்மையினராகவும் ஏழைகளாகவும் அடிமைகளாகவும் மாறுவோம் போல் தெரிகிறது.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, November 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — நாங்கள் தமிழ்த் தேசியக் கூட்டமைப்பை நம்ப வேண்டுமா? இல்லை.
தயவுசெய்து பின்வருவனவற்றைப் படித்து நீங்களே முடிவெடுங்கள்

எந்த ஜனாதிபதி வேட்பாளருக்கு தமிழர்கள் வாக்களிக்க வேண்டும் என்ற தமிழ்த் தேசியக் கூட்டமைப்பின் ஆலோசனையை தயவுசெய்து கேட்க வேண்டாம்.

தமிழர்களாகிய நாங்கள் தமிழ் வேட்பாளருக்கு வாக்களிக்க வேண்டும். தமிழ் வேட்பாளர் தேர்தலில் தோல்வியடைவார் என்பது எங்களுக்குத் தெரியும்.

ஆனால் தமிழ் வேட்பாளருக்கு வாக்களிப்பதன் மூலம் தமிழர்கள் தங்கள் சுயராஜ்யத்தை விரும்புகிறார்கள் என்பதை அமெரிக்கா, ஐரோப்பிய ஒன்றியம் மற்றும் இந்தியாவுக்கு நாங்கள் தெரிவிக்க விரும்பும் செய்தி இது.

கூட்டமைப்பு தமிழர்களை பல வழிகளில் ஏமாற்றிவிட்டது. ஜனாதிபதி தேர்தல் பற்றி தமிழ்த் தேசியக் கூட்டமைப்பின் சொல்லை கேட்பதற்கு முன், இவர்கள் தமிழர்களுக்காகவோ அல்லது முஸ்லிம்களுக்கும் சிங்களவர்களுக்குமாகவோ தமிழ்த் தேசியக் கூட்டமைப்பு செயல்படுகிறதா என்று நாம் கேட்க வேண்டும்.

1. கூட்டமைப்பு இந்தியாவின் 13 பிளஸ் திருத்த சட்டத்தினை ஏன் கைவிட்டது?
நாங்கள் இந்திய மற்றும் சர்வதேச ஈடுபாட்டை இழந்தோம், வடக்கு மற்றும் கிழக்கை தமிழர்களின் தாயகம் என்று அங்கீகரிக்கும் 13 வது திருத்தத்தை இழந்தோம். அது இப்போது தமிழரை மேலும் பாதிக்கக்கூடியதாக ஆக்கியது.

2. புத்த மதத்தை முதன்மையான இடமாக தமிழ்த் தேசியக் கூட்டமைப்பு ஏற்றுக் கொண்டது, இந்து மற்றும் தமிழ் கிறிஸ்தவர்களை அவமதிப்பதாகும். நீராவியடி பிள்ளையர் கோயில் மற்றும் திருகோணமலை வெந்நீர் கிணற்று போராட்டங்கள் புத்தமதத்திற்கு முதன்மையான இடத்திற்கு கூட்டமைப்பு ஆம் என்ற பிறகு நடந்தது.

3. சம்பந்தர் புதுடெல்லிக்குச் சென்று பிரதமர் மோடியிடம் இலங்கை புத்த நாடு என்று கூறினார். சமபந்தன் இதை ஏன் செய்தார் என்பது யாருக்கும் தெரியாது. குறைந்த பட்சம் அவர் தமிழ் இந்துக்களின் வரலாற்றைப்பற்றி பொய் சொல்லக்கூடாது.

4. தமிழ்த் தேசியக் கூட்டமைப்பு, ஸ்ரீலங்கா போர்க்குற்ற விசாரணையை சர்வதேச குற்றவியல் நீதிமன்றத்திற்கு எடுத்துச் செல்வதற்குப் பதிலாக இலங்கைக்கு கொண்டு வந்தது. விசாரணையை நடை முறை படுத்தாமல் இருப்பதற்கு இலங்கைக்கு விசாரணையை ஒத்திவைக்க 4 ஆண்டுகள் (2 முறை) நீட்டிப்பு வழங்க கூட்டமைப்பு உதவியது. இது போரில் பாதிக்கப்பட்ட தமிழ்ர்களுக்கு பெரும் ஏமாற்றமும் அவமானமும் ஆகும்.

5. புதிய அரசியலமைப்பு சபையை உருவாக்க தமிழ்த் தேசியக் கூட்டமைப்பு ஏன் கேட்டது? முதலில் இந்தியாவின் பங்களிப்பிலிருந்து விடுபடவும், இரண்டாவதாக, தமிழ் தாய்நாடு மற்றும் தமிழ் இனம்கருத்திலிருந்து விடுபடவும் ஆகும்.

6. 2015 ஜனாதிபதித் தேர்தலுக்குப் பிறகு, சிங்கள கட்சிகள் பிளவு பட்ட பின்னர், 11 கிழக்கு மாகாண சபை உறுப்பினர்களுடன் தமிழ்த் தேசியக் கூட்டமைப்பு பெரும்பான்யானது. சிறுபான்மையாக இருந்த முஸ்லிம்களை தமிழ்த் தேசியக் கூட்டமைப்பு கிழக்கை ஆள ஆதரவு கொடுத்தது. தமிழர்களுக்கு முதலமைச்சராக இருக்க தகுதியான நபர் இல்லை என்று சுமந்திரன் ஒரு முறை கூறியிருந்தார், பின்னர் மற்ற சந்தர்ப்பங்களில், நல்லிணக்கத்தின் கீழ், கிழக்கு மாகாண சபையை முஸ்லிம்களைக் கைப்பற்ற அனுமதித்தோம் என்று சுமந்திரன் கூறியிருந்தார். இது கிழக்கில் உள்ள தமிழர்கள் தமிழ்த் தேசியக் கூட்டமைப்பை தங்கள் பிரதிநிதிகளாக ஏற்றுக்கொள்ளக் கூடாது என்ற நிலையை உருவாக்கியது. இதை நாங்கள் பல வழிகளில் காணக்கூடியதாகவுள்ளது.

7. அமெரிக்கா, ஐரோப்பிய ஒன்றியம் மற்றும் கொழும்பிலும் விடுதலைப்புலிகள் இரக்கமற்ற பயங்கரவாதி என்று சம்பந்தனும் சுமந்திரனும் விமர்சித்து வந்தனர். தற்போது அவர்கள் விடுதலைப்புலிகளைப் பற்றி அதிகம் நன்றாக கூறுகிறார்கள். இது தமிழ் மக்களின் வாக்குகளைப் பெற தமிழர்களை முட்டாளாக்குவது தான்.
தமிழர்களுக்காக தமிழ்த் தேசியக் கூட்டமைப்பு வேலை செய்யவில்லை என்பதையும், கூட்டமைப்பு முஸ்லிம்ஸ் மற்றும் சிங்களவர்களுக்காக வேலை செய்கிறார்கள் என்பதையும் மேற்கண்ட முக்கியமான உண்மைகள் காட்டுகின்றன.

தமிழ்த் தேசியக் கூட்டமைப்பு தமிழர்களிடம் பொய் சொன்னார்கள். பாராளுமன்றத் தேர்தலின் போது, கூட்டமைப்பு வடகிழக்கு ஒன்றிணைந்த கூட்டாட்சி தமது குறிக்கோள் என்று கூறியது, ஆனால் அவர்கள் ஒருபோதும் அரசியலமைப்பு சபையின் அங்கமாக இருந்தபோதிலும், அரசியலமைப்பு சபையிலிருந்து வடகிழக்கு இணைப்பு அல்லது கூட்டாட்சிக்காக குரல் கொடுக்கவுமில்லை. கேட்கவுமில்லை.

இப்போது நாம் கூட்டமைப்பை க கேட்க வேண்டும். அவர்கள் 2015 இல் நிபந்தனைகள் இல்லாமல் சிரிசேனாவை ஆதரித்தனர். ஜனாதிபதி சிரிசேனாவிடம் இருந்து எங்களுக்கு எதுவும் கிடைக்கவில்லை, ஆனால் தமிழர்கள் முன்பை விட சிறிசேனாவின் கீழ் அதிகம் பாதிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளனர். சிரிசேனா தனது இறந்த உடலின் மீது கூட, தமிழர்களுக்கு ஒருபோதும் வடகிழக்கு இணைப்பு மற்றும் கூட்டாட்சி கொடுக்க தயாரில்லை.

தமிழ்த் தேசியக் கூட்டமைப்பின் நடவடிக்கைளை உற்று நோக்கும் போது, அவர்கள் சலுகைகள் மற்றும் சிங்களவர்களிடமிருந்து சில பதவிகளில் ஆர்வம் காட்டுகிறார்கள் என்பதை நாங்கள் ஊகிக்க முடிகிறது. இவற்றைக் எல்லாம் பார்த்தால், நாம் வடக்கில் சிறுபான்மையினராகவும் ஏழைகளாகவும் அடிமைகளாகவும் மாறுவோம் போல் தெரிகிறது.

கிழக்கை பிறப்பிடமாக கொண்ட சம்பந்தன் கூட, கிழக்கு தமிழர்களைப் பற்றி கவலைப்படவேயில்லை, ஏன் என்று உங்களுக்குத் தெரியுமா, ஏனென்றால் வடக்கோடு ஒப்பிடும்போது கிழக்கில் அதிக வாக்கு வங்கி இல்லை என்பதனால்தான் ஆகும்.

சிங்களவர்களால் வழங்கப்படும் சலுகைகளை அனுபவிக்க தமிழ்த் தேசியக் கூட்டமைப்பு அதிகாரத்தில் இருக்க வேண்டும். இதனால் தான் கிழக்கை விட்டுவிட்டு அதிக அளவில் வடக்குக்கு கூட்டமைப்பு வருகிறது.

அன்பான தமிழ்ச் சொந்தங்களே!!!
நாங்கள் உங்களிடம் வேண்டிக்கொள்வதெல்லாம், தயவுசெய்து உங்கள் வாக்குகளை ஒரு தமிழ் வேட்பாளருக்கு வாக்களியுங்கள்.

தமிழ் வாக்காளரின் சின்னமான “மீன்” சின்னத்திற்கு வாக்களியுங்கள்.

நன்றி,
ஆசிரியர் குழு,
புலம்பெயர் தமிழர்களின் செய்திகள்.

Boots About To Be Kicked In The Bank Account

Boots

Boots

Boots Union

Retail giant Boots could face a £180 million pay claim, The Workers Union can reveal.

Retail giant Boots could face a £180 million pay claim”

— Daniel Whittle Chief Editor

COVENTRY, UNITED KINGDOM, November 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — According to some sources, nearly 56,000 in-store employees may be able to join the claim.

The current situation arose when some members of staff recognised that store workers (who are mainly female) are paid less than the men employed in the company’s network of warehouses. With instore staff claiming that they work at least as hard as their off-floor colleagues, it seems that there may be a case to answer. And if the apparent disparity breaches the Equality Act 2010, it could see Boots’ bosses forced to cough up back pay to the tune of £180 million pounds.
In response, a spokesperson for Boots said that “we are confident that we pay all our colleagues fairly and lawfully.”
The Boots action is just one of a series of fights for equal pay in the retail sector, with supermarkets such as Tesco, ASDA, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s currently in the spotlight.

The Workers Union is determined to keep this issue at the forefront of public debate. Our ‘Same Days, Equal Pay’ campaign puts the demand for equality front and centre of the fight for workers’ rights.

We’re good at it, too, as many of our members will testify.

If you are in a pay dispute with your employer and you don’t know what to do next, then join our union. We have access to the best in legal advice, and best of all, our rules are flexible: you won’t have to wait six weeks to access your membership benefits – everything you need to help you is available straight away.

The Workers Union – fighting for equal pay, fighting for you

It should not be legal for a child to be taken into custody and sent for involuntary psychiatric examination without parental knowledge when the child does not meet the criteria for a Baker Act.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, November 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Attended by hundreds of guests, the 4th Annual Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) Humanitarian Awards Banquet once again honored the many dedicated volunteers and supporters of CCHR for their work help restore rights and dignity to the field of mental health.

The 2019 CCHR Hall of Fame Award, was presented to Dr. Freddie Ulan. One of the original founding members of CCHR, Dr, Ulan began his fight for human rights in 1969 and helped to establish CCHR chapters across the world including the Florida chapter.

Known for her no nonsense attitude when it comes to the letter of the law, this year’s recipient of the prestigious CCHR Humanitarian Award was Orlando attorney Ms. Kendra Parris for her work to protect the rights of Floridians under the Baker Act. Having helped secure the safe release of more than 50 men, women and children who were being held unjustly in psychiatric facilities under the mental health law called the Baker Act, Ms. Parris dedicated to stopping psychiatric abuse.

In accepting the award, Kendra said, “We have an unconscionable problem in Florida. It is the routine and cavalier way in which individuals are being subjected to baseless, inhumane psychiatric examinations. There is a profit motive built into this scheme, which leads to systemic violations of patients’ rights; forced and unwarranted drugging; manipulation of statutory legal protections for the financial gain of the facilities; and often outright fraud.”

Citing the abusive use of the mental health law, Parris vowed to continue working with CCHR to help create effective legislative changes that hold psychiatrists and facilities accountable for rights violations.

Originally intended to protect patient rights, the Baker Act has now become a source of human rights abuse with involuntary psychiatric examinations more than doubling in the past 16 years. According to the Baker Act Reporting Center, 36,078 Baker Acts were initiated during 2017-2018 which equates to one Baker Act every 15 minutes. Even more disturbing is that the mental health law allows for a child to be Baker Acted without parental knowledge. [1]

Launching a campaign to put an end to this violation of rights in 2016, the Florida chapter of CCHR, a non-profit mental health watchdog dedicated to the protection of children, has educated almost 220,000 families on their rights under the law in addition to calling upon Florida lawmakers to eliminate the unjust Baker Acting of children.

“We must restore and secure basic freedoms and rights, especially and most importantly, for our next generation… our leaders of tomorrow… mankind’s future,” said Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida. “It should not be legal for a child to be taken into custody and sent for involuntary psychiatric examination without parental knowledge when the child does not meet the criteria for a Baker Act.”

Minnesota Teachers embark on humanitarian aid trip to Guatemala, providing critical assistance to impoverished children and their families

We built a simple house, but we gave a family a home and better living conditions. The GOD'S CHILD Project is a wonderful example of practical charity work that helps so many people.”

ST. CLOUD, MINNESOTA, USA, November 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Minnesota Teachers travel to Guatemala to give Humanitarian Aid, Give to the Max Day Support

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
November 11, 2019

St. Cloud, Minnesota, November 11, 2019: Married teachers, Seth and Elizabeth Steinson, chose to celebrate their recent wedding anniversary in an unconventional manner.

This year they decided providing charity to others would be their gift to one another, subsequently embarking on a humanitarian aid trip to Guatemala which provided critical assistance to impoverished children and their mothers in partnership with The GOD’S CHILD Project, a charity in Golden Valley, Minnesota.

Minnesota Volunteers Make a Big Impact in Guatemala

More than half of the people in Guatemala live below the poverty line. For families with young children, this often means having no choice but to sleep on wet dirt floors, resulting in otherwise preventable illnesses and medical problems.

Every year, volunteers from Minnesota and other states travel to Guatemala with the help of The GOD’S CHILD Project to build new homes for families using materials donated by the organization’s volunteer network.

Each house takes 3 days to complete. On the last day of the build, the home is ‘gifted’ to the family during a ceremony at which mothers and builders alike are moved to tears.

Nearly 1,500 homes have been built through The GOD’S CHILD Project since its founding by Patrick Atkinson in 1991. To qualify for a new house, a family must currently live with dirt floors, be financially in need, and have children in the home.

While in Guatemala, volunteers live with middle-class families in Antigua. The trips usually involve tourist site visits in addition to volunteer time. The Steinsons’ chose to visit ancient Mayan ruins, so they could share the experience with their students back home. What they anticipate their students will be most interested in, however, will be the charity work itself.

The family the Steinsons’ built for consisted of a mother, Victoria, and her six children ranging in age from sixteen to three years old. Almost four years ago, Victoria lost her husband and has been caring for her children on her own since.

Victoria never attended school, which gives her very little opportunity for gainful employment. She farms the land near her home by hand to feed her family. Her oldest child, a sixteen-year old daughter, works full time to help support the family as well.

Scope of Impact is Large

Volunteers work in partnership with The GOD’S CHILD Project to give vulnerable families an opportunity to become self-sufficient, educated, and healthy members of society.

As well as building homes and distributing donations to the community, here are just some of the ways in which international volunteers help children and families in Guatemala:

• Providing care at Casa Jackson Hospital for Malnourished Children, the only hospital in Central America dedicated completely to free inpatient care for severely malnourished children
• Helping at Santa Madre Homeless Shelter, a safe place to sleep for abused and abandoned children, battered women, and families fleeing natural disasters
• Handing out food to 1,000+ people in need at the weekly Food Distribution, including war widows, abandoned mothers, and the elderly
• Helping at Dreamer Center School for impoverished children, who often have no access to running water, electricity, or school supplies
• Helping at the Scheel Center School, designed for older students who have missed out on education due to being in the child labor force
