Let the Children live!

This is a fund-raising recording for El Hogar de Amor y Esperanza and Project Micah, street children's projects in Honduras, Central America.  It is made by professional and amateur musicians in Bristol UK, all performing gratis and all profits going directly to benefit the children.

The recording includes spoken information about street children, and we are indebted to Casa Alianza for their permission to use recent information published on their internet website.

We hope you enjoy the music and visit the various websites advertised in the CD insert to find out more about the sad plight of abandoned, abused, addicted street children in Central America, and the noble help being given to them on scant resources.

This recording celebrates the street children's potential and tries to help them achieve it.  Thank you for your kind support.  It is very much appreciated.
