Coming from Yemen after the Arab spring revolution and having to leave my family behind because they did not have the proper documentation to come to the states, I felt disconnected and isolated from my homeland.
It only got worse after that since the poorest country in the Middle East got caught in a full scale war and consequently suffered the world’s worst humanitarian crisis!
Upon finding out about pure hands I was delighted to finally find a way I can help my home and my people with both time and money.
I have been volunteering for pure hands for 3 years now and I will forever be grateful for all their efforts in helping the most desperate and vulnerable people in the world!

Thank you Pure Hands!

Pure Hands is an amazing organization that I’m proud to be a volunteer of. What’s happening in Yemen is an issue that is not done enough for, but Pure Hands does as much as they can in the most humble way to help those in need. The organizers and my fellow volunteers are all so kind and this is an organization I love being apart of.

I am a community activist and my experience with Pure Hands has been a positive experience .

I will just share one story about Pure Hands.

About four months ago, there were two single mothers who recently came to the U.S. Both are single mothers with children. Both single-mothers work part time but needed urgent help with their rent, utility bills and other expenses.

I appealed to Pure Hands for help. Pure Hands has stepped in and provided the urgent help needed for the two single mothers. This urgent help has allowed the two single mothers not to only cover their urgent expenses but has also allowed them to go to vocational schools and to also look for better high paying jobs and to also learn ESL.

Pure Hands has intervened at a time where timely financial assistance was almost not available via other organizations.

I am so grateful that such organization do exist to help with situations like the ones described above.

I would definitely support Pure Hands.

I will not be exaggerating if I say that this relief non profit organization is one of the most transparent organizations I cams across. Its board members and volunteers are very honest and well respected people. The organization is working hard since its inception to cover the gap in humanitarian relief in one of the most devastated countries in the world. Their main focus is on Yemen and they have done a wonderful job. They definitely need our continuous support so they can carry on the job. If you really want to save children please consider donating to this organization.

Pure Hands is the only nonprofit that I know who focuses their attention just to the people of Yemen. They not only help support with the food crisis that’s going on but they as well help by providing for orphans, lively stock and much more Alhamdulilah

I am proudly a volunteer of Pure Hands and I love being part of everything they do. Pure Hands is a way for me to give back to my people without expecting anything but a smile on their faces in a tough time like this where they dont even know where their next or only meal will come from. I try to be there at every event no matter how late or far it is. Due to my young age my mom dont allow me to go places alone at late hours but thanks to one of the Pure Hands workers, she makes sure she gets us a ride and makes sure I get home safe. They truly make their volunteers feel special and that they are happy and treated well. They have workshops for their volunteers. They have lots of events to help collect donations. They also give out a flier at mosques and events for people who want to donate. They make sure that the people know what they are donating for and how the money can actually reach the people. They have evidence(pictures) proofing their success in making people smile. It is honestly the best non profit organization.

Pure Hands is the first humanitarian non profit organization that I’ve ever worked with my entire life. Going to Houston and learning about the amazing things that they do for the people of Yemen was truly humbling and taught me the importance of how the smallest things do matter when it comes to helping others. The Pure Hands team is truly made up of amazing people who do this work truly for the sake of Allah swt with the most amount of ihsan masha’Allah. I truly hope Allah does nothing but continue to bless this organization with khir and elevate all those who have helped whether that’s with donations and working behind the scenes to the highest level of jannah, ameen.
