In November, 2009, 4 Sunshine Action volunteers went various places in India for the Charity Mission. They donated over 3,000 kg of rice, over 1000 kg of DAL, 800 kg of Potatoes, as well as others food products and medicines. During this trip, Sunshine Action benefitted over 1,725 cases/families, equivalent to over 2,174 individuals. 

During this trip, volunteers visited and donated food and other mateirals to M.C. Nirmal Hriday and M.C. Premdam in Kolkata. Sunshine Action also visited the Leprosy Centre in Seemapuri and sponsored a medical instrument specialized for Leprosy  operation. 

Volunteers also visited Vrindavan, where the Guild of Service has a house to care for displaced widows. Vrindavan is known as the City of Widows due to the large number of widows who move into the town and surrounding area after losing their husbands. According to some Hindu traditions, upper-caste widows may not remarry, so many of those abandoned by their families make their way here. There are an estimated 15,000 to 20,000 widows living on the streets, many of whom have spent over 30 years there.

They also set up the first Sunshine Action Medical Camp in the poorest village of India in cooperation with Rotary Club of Calcutta Uptown & Country Women's Assoc. of India in Kaoradanga Village. Sunshine Action provided medicines, vitamins and medical camp to cover 156 patients, including children and adults.

In November, 2012, 7 Sunshine Action volunteers went to India to donate food, medicine, wheelchairs and other materials. Sunshine Action also contributed to several building projects for those in need. During this trip, Sunshine Action collaborated with 10 centres/organisations, and benefitted over 2,360 people. 

In February, 2014, the Sunshine Action volunteers traveled to Calcutta, India, and donated food, clothes and basic materials as well as provided student sponsorship money and building construction materials to several local organizations. Volunteers visited four children’s homes and provided aid to handicapped children. A visit to one of these centers, where children once condemned to death are given a second chance, is a profoundly moving experience.

In 2016/2017,  Sunshine Action once again volunteered with Missionaries of Charity.
