#AceNewsServices – BRITAIN – October 11 – UK-based members of Anonymous launched Operation Safe Winter in Britain on Friday.
The project is aimed at providing the homeless with life’s essentials, while raising awareness of the punishing effects of austerity and the UK’s housing crisis.
Launched to coincide with World Homeless Day, the initiative is a global outreach program. In an international effort to battle against homelessness, Anonymous branches around the world will work alongside social justice campaigns.
Officially founded in November of last year, the program evolved organically out of an array of charitable projects. In 2013, OpSafeWinter provided homeless support in 12 different countries. It was particularly active in Britain, America, and Brazil.
Britain’s East Coast Homeless Outreach (ECHO) project, currently up for a special award from the Lloyds Bank Foundation, originated from Anonymous UK’s efforts to support homeless Britons in 2013.
