Amazing work, allowing humans all over the world to live with dignity and be productive. Restores hope to all those who are and might be affected.
The work this organization does is extraordinary! A true humanitarian effort, getting straight to the issues and concerns of pediatric burn victims. I am also very happy with the global perspective being taken, leveraging expertise gained to broaden the mission to other continents. Fantastic!
HandReach is one of the best examples you'll ever come across of how small really is beautiful. The number of kids and others it has helped and continues to help, and the extent of the difference it has made in their lives, are out of all proportion to its size. From its remarkable Exec.Director Brecken Chinn to its most occasional of helpers, everyone associated with HandReach puts their shoulders to the wheel in the most extraordinary way. HandReach is the very definition of a great non-profit.
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.
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.
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!
