In terms of Canadian Social Action activities, we have supported “Out of the Cold” programs for homeless persons in winter in neighbouring churches.
Internationally, we have helped to train an orthopedic Surgeon in the Republic of Congo, working with young people who have lost limbs in wartime, or suffer from congenital skeletal problems.
