Humanitarian Hands Charities: An Overview
In response to the growing number of orphans in Uganda, Ray and Mary Christopher founded Humanitarian Hands Charities (formerly Humanitarian Hands Foundation) in 2006 to provide housing, healthcare, quality education, and job skills training to empower the impoverished families in Africa and the vulnerable refugees and immigrants in the Dallas Metroplex.
Humanitarian Hands Charities empowers African children to focus on academic achievement to promote future success for them in the job market. As successful employees and entrepreneurs they can encourage the next generation of children towards academic and professional achievement as well as personal economic sustainability.
The disadvantaged of Africa and the refugees and immigrants in the United States are Not Alone when you partner with us to provide a hopeful future.
Humanitarian Hands Charities was founded in 2006 to empower individuals to create a hopeful, sustainable future for themselves and their communities across Africa and locally.
To improve the future of the disadvantaged and displaced by providing access to education, healthcare and training in culturally relevant life skills.
In an effort to empower lives, starting in Uganda, Humanitarian Hands Charities is building The John and Marie Parrish Medical Clinic for the community to encourage healthy living and a children’s home to house and educate orphaned children of Fort Portal, providing a self-sustained future.
When working with local refugee and immigrant resettlement agencies, we realized a great necessity: Refugees, immigrants and their families need access to continued focused services after the initial resettlement period.
Humanitarian Hands Charities has accepted the opportunity to fill this void. Our objective: to establish a core assistance center for the refugee and immigrant community that will guide them and improve their life skills and literacy creating productive citizens.
Our organization will provide the long term assistance to empower these refugees and immigrants with successful social, cultural and educational integration into the United States.
