Although Canadians are faced with our own poverty and human rights issues, the difference is that Canada is a cash-rich government who can afford to focus on improving the well-being of Canadians with persausion coming from voters. Citizens of cash-poor developing countries/governments with few financial resources, such as Nepal,are the poorest of the poor and funds from outside of their country is a blessing. Congrats to Christina who chose to spend her March break, not relaxing, but giving back to the country she is travelling to.
