HandReach has been my life for the past 10 years. Through its work, I have seen injured children's lives be transformed from utter hopelessness to "the sky's the limit." Our donors, volunteers, and Board members are among the most outstanding people I've ever had the pleasure to work with.

I was involved in this organization mainly at the beginning of this organization. I got to know some incredible human beings who devoted their lives to helping those under-privileged.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Being a distributor of a micro-grand to China, I am glad to see that the most under-privileged kids got the help from us.

HandReach is an amazing organization, with its noble mission of helping all children get equal opportunities of education and life. The Children's Healing Initiative (CHI) program helps the children who are severely burnt or amputated to get back the mobility so that they can live a productive life, which they wouldn't possibly have otherwise. HandReach has helped many individual children, and is strategically moving from a direct service provider to focusing on changing the system so that much more children can be helped. In order to do that, it needs more funding and resources. I hope people will support HandReach to achieve its goals and help all the needy children.

The Great!

HandReach strives to tackle one of the world's most pressing and intractable problems -- pediatric trauma injuries. The world's poorest children are at highest risk of burns and traumatic amputations, two of the very most complex and expensive conditions to treat. HandReach is committed to helping children, no matter how poor or how severe their injury, have access to full rehabilitation and a happy, productive life!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've seen children's lives literally be saved. Kids have gained badly-needed surgeries, intubation, prosthetics, grafts, physical and occupational therapy, and lots and lots of love!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help it gain more funding! The work is enormous, and HandReach is doing its best to make innovative use of resources to create deep impact over the long run.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

working with unbelievably caring, loving people to make a real difference for children suffering from some of the most devastating injuries in the world.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

smart, committed, loving, and simply amazing! HandReach is truly bringing together some of the best hands in the world to help them reach to where the need is greatest.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

create a worldwide network to provide desperately-needed treatment and rehabilitation for child burn survivors. There would be nowhere in the world a child could be injured that was out of reach of care.

Ways to make it better...

we could do more! It's heartbreaking to see children whose conditions are so severe that desperately-needed surgeries or treatment is simply out of reach.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Funding! Burns are simply the most expensive condition to treat, and those most badly injured are usually the world's poorest children whose families bankrupt themselves trying to get needed care but simply can't afford it.

One thing I'd also say is that...

HandReach is right there in the trenches, helping kids and families face the terror and pain of burn injuries and amputations with hope, love, and joy. Until burns and amputations no longer happen, HandReach's work will be crucial to a healthy world.
