Over 300,000 orphans need your support
Helping Hand currently supports many children from Sri Lanka. There is an estimated 300,000 orphans in Sri Lanka; one fifth of the children are stunted as a result of inadequate nutrition and inadequate access to clean drinking water.
Many children in Sri Lanka are left parentless due to civil wars and natural disasters the country has faced, causing an estimated death toll of over 100,000. Helping Hand is making an effort to provide the orphans of Sri Lanka with the support they need to develop into adults that can better their community. Helping Hand provides school supplies and uniforms for, conducts periodical health check-ups, and conducting counseling programs for mothers and guardians. Helping Hand also aims to provide educational tours, entertainment programs, as well as Eid gifts, clothes, and parties. Your monthly contributions will help make the dreams of these Sri Lankan orphans come true.
