"Helping people help themselves."
HRC is a registered Charity in Canada & the USA. We are also a United Way Donor Choice Organization. This means when you donate to United Way you can request your donation be directed to Health Reach Canada.
People in the developing world know what their issues are and they also know how to resolve them in culturally appropriate and sustainable ways.
Given the opportunity to identify pressing issues, strategies, and actions, those of a culture can decide and implement sustainable positive change. Our job is to be there in a supportive role.
Health Reach Canada is doing good work with little in the way of funding. We actually see the difference we are helping people make in their lives. How is it that so little can make such a big difference when so much has done so little?
The difference between Health Reach Canada and other non-profit organizations and government agencies is that we do not come in with a program or programs we think the people need and impose them. We do nothing unless the people ask and follow through with us by participating in gaining the desired outcome. This philosophy and methodology helps ensure sustainability and wise use of precious funds.
People know what their needs are. Our job is to find that out by asking questions and helping people understand they do have the answers. This makes the solution theirs and because it is theirs, it is sustainable. In this way, people can and are improving their lives.
Our funding comes from individuals and organizations who want their donation to make a difference.
