TREWO Background:

Launched on April 1, 2009, ‑the Ripple Effect Wellness Organization (TREWO) is a registered charity dedicated to educating and empowering Canadians to take control of their health through education and empowerment.

gap between physicians and patients through open dialogue in as many languages and platforms as possible.

TREWO Mandate:

Canada is ethnically diverse and TREWO recognizes that Canadians require customized care at the community level. Certain cultural communities are at a higher risk for specific diseases, and require specialized care – including but not limited to diabetes, high cholesterol and Multiple Sclerosis. Given the enormity of the Canadian health landscape, TREWO is committed to:

• Acting as a one-stop health resource

• Initiating empowerment through interactivity

• Promoting physician/patient dialogue on the web through a new Doctor-on-Call initiative

• Providing a community-based perspective on healthcare support

• Caring for communities

Key TREWO Projects: TREWO has played a key role in the Anjar Project, the Roofs for the Roofless in India and the YWCA in Sri Lanka. We have participated in projects for the Dixie Gurdwara, the Indian Rainbow Centre and th‑e Heart and Stroke Foundation. In the process, we have made local communities aware of their efforts.

TREWO has also proudly assisted in presenting many seminars that provide information to all communities with respect to mental health, nutrition and communities at risk (women, seniors, youth and children). And these are the concerns of all communities – not just one ethnic background, religion or race.

TREWO has partnered with such caring and compassionate groups such as War Child, Scarborough Women’s Shelter, CAMH (Centre for Addiction and Mental Health) and CAPIH (Canadian Association of Physicians of Indian Heritage) in their fund raisers – specifically in holding seminars and the promotion of their events.

TREWO recently organized and hosted a successful Health Mela on April 24th, 2010 at the Pearson Convention Centre. This mela had a special focus on the South Asian community.  Activities included informational health care sessions, yoga and meditation classes, cooking demonstrations and special performances.
