As any good gardener or farmer knows, access to water and functional irrigation is key to growing crops and important for a family’s livelihood. Mark Cullen, a well-known Canadian gardener, author, and broadcaster has been an avid spokesperson for S.H.A.R.E. for over 30 years. In a 2014 article he describes his participation in a S.H.A.R.E. trip to El Salvador to monitor the Pumps for Food project, which provided over 30 water pumps to Salvadorian and Honduran families. He said, "I am happy to report that this organization [S.H.A.R.E.] is doing a masterful job of opening doors of prosperity to a great number of people in Central and South America. S.H.A.R.E. supports landless people and subsistence farmers with the tools and resources that they need to get a start”.
