Improving the welfare of children in Eastern Uganda
Helping hands Uganda is a Canadian registered charitable organization that begun in 2006.
Our focus is in the areas of education, healthcare, food security and an income generating activity, to benefit not only the sponsored child, but also their siblings, caregivers/parents and in a few cases, their whole village benefited in some ways.
Our strong belief is that everyone deserves better and works to show children that they have not been forgotten.
