Locally we share by engaging volunteers and building awareness of the opportunities that can be created to benefit people that do not have equitable access to resources.

g charitable partners as we carry out medical, educational and disaster relief programs that relieve poverty and create the opportunity for social change.  Many of our programs involve small budgets that have the ability to touch many people. Our programming creates grass roots societal change by supporting one person, one family, one community at a time.

For example, we donate nutritional support for over five thousand people experiencing poverty yearly.  Our agents prepare the raw foodstuffs that Canadians Sharing buys in India and distribute the meals to needful rural residents.  Another example is in the various medical equipment that we supply to The Sri Narayani Hospital and Research Center near Vellore.  The hospital provides us with a list of their equipment needs and prices.  Through Canadians Sharing’s evaluations, we select the appropriate piece or pieces of equipment and purchase it directly from the manufacturer. Canadians Sharing arranges shipping for the equipment and the hospital arranges for the delivery, installation and warranty requirements for the equipment. Our volunteers confirm the proper installation and operation of the equipment as well as the benefit from the equipment.  We also monitor the use of the equipment on an ongoing basis.
