“Lift up and stretch out your hands, not to heaven but to the poor; for if you stretch your hands to the poor, you have reached the summit of Heaven.” – St John Chrysostom
Hands of Humanity (FB) is a Northwest based Charity that assists people in Haiti, Cuba, Dominican Republic and other Countries. Here is an excerpt in their own words from their about page, click to learn more :
“ Hands of Humanity is a 501(c)3 U.S. Federal Nonprofit Corporation, EIN# 26-2601219. We are a international humanitarian organization focusing on developing participatory, sustainable projects in rural areas of the developing world. The projects involve community development in the areas of efficient cooking methods, clean water, sanitation, fighting deforestation, education and economic relief.
Our mission is to teach existing, proven methods of improving the quality of life to rural people so that they may best help themselves. Hands Of Humanity seeks to empower rural communities to fulfill basic necessities that are fundamental to human dignity. It is our determination that the most cost-effective way to accomplish these goals is through education, example and support. We have learned that given the proper education and tools to work with, people will find a way to help themselves for the long term. This is far better than giving temporary assistance which benefits them only in the short term. Instead of trying to re-invent the wheel, HOH is looking to efficiently implement projects which are already in the works.”
Hands of Humanity also “supports the St. Jean de Freres Orthodox Elementary School in Petionville, HAITI. The school educates 250 children absolutely FREE. In a country where 50% of children do not have the opportunity to go to school, it is the best opportunity they have to better their lives.
Please SPONSOR A CHILD. Only $25 a month gets them a FREE education and quite possibly the only meal they will have for the day. Click here to go to the Orthodox Archdiocese of Mexico website Sponsor A Child Program >>”
