The shortage of resources faced by many countries where the Society is established promotes a spirit of Vincentian sharing.
Conferences and Councils help each other, both nationally and internationally. This bond consists of sharing prayer, deep friendship and material resources, and is known as Twinnage or Twinning; it helps to create links among the various countries in the Confederation.
