Emotions and desire for a fairer world in the concert of Projecte Sostre
1 December, 2015
On Saturday November 7 the Badalona Zorrilla theater hosted the "Duendes: Música i Sostre" (Elves: Music and Roof) concert, a benefit concert organized by Projecte Sostre volunteers in order to sensitize the public about the situation of homeless people and to raise funds for the project.
Projecte Sostre is an initiative by a group of volunteers who offer temporary home to homeless people who cannot be accommodated in other residence services. "They offered shelter, dinner, a place to sleep and a place of reference where they are welcomed as individuals, without conditions or prejudices. This has been done 365 days a year during the last 23 years,” explains the social educator Marina Quinto: "It’s a project brought together by volunteers, who spend the night with the homeless people, and with a professional Suara Cooperativa, who every morning offers support to the project users and coordinates with the different neighborhood social networks and with the volunteer group.”
