Toronto: If someone asks me what the synonym of the world is? I comfortably say ‘society’. A society where people do hard work for the well-being of others, a society where kindness matters more than credit, a society that aims for cultural diversity, a society where some people come forward to create peace and harmony and develop relations. These people are no one but volunteers ‘ the underrated heroes’.
Yes, we are talking about Ontario Heroes & Social Services (OHSS). It is a non-profitable organization founded in the year 2020. This organization is working with the help of volunteer powers. However, they are bounded by Ontario’s Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA) 2004. The idea behind the foundation is to make sure that ‘we don’t giving up on you easily’.
