Health Education Overview
In countries without readily available health services, illness can take a great physical, emotional and financial toll on individuals and their families. The poor are very vulnerable to any type of calamity, and sickness prevents individuals from continuing in their livelihoods and providing for their families.
With training in areas such as hygiene, sanitation, nutrition and the treatment of common illnesses, families are able to prevent and respond appropriately to common ailments. Such knowledge reduces mortality rates and enables families to become more productive.
World Relief Canada’s Mission is to respond to the relief and development needs of the world’s poor in the name of Jesus Christ, through our global network of Christian organizations, in partnership with Canadian and overseas Churches.
World Relief Canada’s Vision is to see people responding, with compassion and justice, to the needs of the poor, oppressed and suffering in ways that bring healing and transformation in the world’s poorest communities.
World Relief Canada's Core Values are the essential cornerstones upon which we do our work and are reflected in the following six areas.
- Economic Justice
- Empowerment and Equity
- Environmental Integrity
- Mutual Independence
- Financial Accountability
