Sharing America’s Resources Abroad

Our Mission:

To offer medical assistance to improve the well-being of poor people around the world.

SARA (Sharing America’s Resources Abroad) is a non-profit organization incorporated in Ohio. It is an ecumenical ministry affiliated with the Heartland Conference of the United Church of Christ.

Resources to accomplish SARA’s mission come from volunteer participation and charitable donations provided by health-care providers, religious organizations, businesses, not-for-profit corporations and concerned individuals. SARA is particularly interested in working with other not-for-profit organizations who are seeking to serve others in the same way.
