Making a commitment to the local and global community
Corporate support is key to any organization and Humanitarian Hands Charities is no different. What makes HHCharities different is that your company can make a global impact through your charitable contribution.
The world is becoming increasingly flat and connected both socially and economically. HHCharities allows you to make an impact in your own community as well as communities across the globe.
More than 85,000 Sub-Saharan Africans live in Dallas/Fort Worth communities. Currently over 2,500 orphans live in Fort Portal, Uganda; more than 5% of the town’s population. It is imperative to provide encouragement and motivation to help these children conquer challenges and excel in school.
Your contribution will allow HHCharities to empower African children, both here and abroad, to focus on academic achievement and life long success. As successful employees and entrepreneurs they can encourage the next generation of children towards academic and professional achievement as well as personal economic sustainability.
ABOUT HUMANITARIAN HANDS CHARITIES
Humanitarian Hands Charities was founded in 2006 by Ray and Mary Christopher in response to the growing number of orphans in Uganda. HHCharities empowers Ugandan youth to create a hopeful, sustainable future for themselves and their communities by providing housing, healthcare, quality education, job skills, and life skills training.
As the number of orphans in Fort Portal, Uganda rises; HHCharities primary challenge is to build a Medical Clinic for those that are dying from treatable ailments, and secondly, to build a children’s home to house and educate 500 parentless children to move them towards a brighter future.
Locally, our impact will be in the refugee and immigrant community establishing focused literacy programs that will increase their efforts for US Citizenship and successful daily living.

Medical Center – Fort Portal, Uganda
HHCharities has two goals set for helping this community; first, to build a Medical Clinic that will save lives by treating common ailments and educating the community on disease and infection prevention. This clinic will house a reception area with restrooms, five (5) exam rooms, a laboratory, doctors and staff office, and a secured drug storage room. Our second goal is to build the Ray of Hope Children’s Home that will house 500 orphans. We realized, through needs assessment, that you cannot educate the children when they are too sick to attend school.
Cultural Life Skills Center
Humanitarian Hands Charities (HHCharities) performed an assessment of needs with local refugee resettlement agencies and has accepted the opportunity to reach into the refugee community and establish a Core Assistance Center for the refugees that will guide them beyond their six month resettlement experience. Our organization will perform long-term assistance to empower the refugees with successful integration and guidance into the United States socially, culturally, and educationally; increasing and improving their various literacy arenas and instructional support for Naturalization and US Citizenship.
