Alianza Latina USA, a non-profit organization, was founded with the purpose of giving aid to the Latin American community residing in the United States of America, and as well as to the people of Central and South America. Our focus is on projects related to health, education and social welfare.
Every day the media informs us of the globalization of poverty, violence, wars and natural disasters. As members of the global community, these issues have impact on us, and at the same time inspire us to make a positive difference in the lives of the most vulnerable.
Respecting our diverse cultural values, Latin Americans, based in the Washington, DC area, are coming together to reach out and help.
Our first mission was to raise funds to help build a Reconstructive Surgery Center at the regional Hospital of Choele-Choel, Rio Negro Province, Argentina, for the Caritas Felices project. Alianza Latina USA gave financial aid and equipment to perform surgery on underprivileged children that have genetic facial disfigurations or malformations due to sickness or accidents.
Alianza Latina USA will continue building partnerships, join forces to give assistance to the Latin American community.
Alianza Latina USA collaborates with other non-profit organizations, giving to, and receiving aid from them. We have raised funds to build a Reconstructiove Surgery Center in Argentina and have received aid from CEDA (Comisión Esperanza Damas Argentinas), Comité Argentino de Virginia, Providence Hospital in Washington DC, Operation Smile (Operación Sonrisa).
