Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Health, Health Support, International, International Relief

Mission: Project Helping Hands is a non-affiliated, not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing sustainable healthcare and education programs to people in developing countries, through culturally sensitive adventure.

Results: Last year, we deployed 12 medical teams in 8 different countries on 4 different continents. The countries we deployed to were Kenya, Bolivia, Cambodia, Peru, Philippines, Uganda, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic. Those trips were carried out by nearly 200 volunteers, each sacrificing their time and money to become a part of our global mission—to provide sustainable healthcare and education programs to people in developing countries, through culturally sensitive adventure. Launching into new regions while continuing to maintain our established relationships is a key component to our organization’s success. We could do neither of those things without a steady stream of volunteers willing to join us in our work. That’s why I’m encouraged to report that many new volunteers undertook their first trip with us this year. Of course, none of this would have been possible without the generous support of our donors.

Target demographics: Our medical and dental clinics provide free healthcare and health education in developing dations in areas where care is limited or difficult to obtain.

I've been a volunteer on three trips to Kenya and served on the board of PHH. An amazing organization with passionate and dedicated folks, looking to transform communities using education and healthcare as the tools. As a volunteer I was able to provide education to local healthcare providers and the community on a variety of topics from first aid to hygiene. I also provided healthcare screenings and care to the community both in clinics and in their homes. The team members will be friends forever. While I would like to think I gave a lot, I think Kenya gave more to me. As a board member I aspire to propel PHH further into the countries we currently serve and expand our mission to others. Come see for yourself and serve a PHH community!

It was amazing to join Project Helping Hands international medical team. I went to Nepal and experienced the great work that PHH does helping and treating the people in the villages that have little or no access to health care, doctors or dentist. I was involved helping with community education classes and dental clinics. Thank you Project Helping Hands for an amazing experience and for the amazing work that you are doing in developing nations.
