About Us

SacredHand Canada (SHC) is a registered international Canadian Charity that was established by a network of women and youth in 2008. Founded in Ontario, Canada. SHC's operations are uniquely volunteer-run. Our organization operates several projects to provide services on the front-line by supplying food and hygiene kits to single-family units, seniors, refugees and immigrants, people living with disabilities and people with limited mobility. We deliver culturally sensitive and relevant provisional items by placing ourselves in the shoes of our beneficiaries. Our front-line experience and and knowledge leads us to address systemic issues behind the cause and allow us work towards collective solutions. SHC is built on team effort and realizing that more can be accomplished with collaborative work and shared goals.
