Helping Hands International is a nondenominational Christian Organization dedicated to sending teams throughout the world to bring help and hope to hurting people. Sharing the love of God through practical help is our primary goal.
The founders of Helping Hands International, Ron and Leslie Ashpole, began leading mission teams to foreign countries in 1986. For 30 years, they have been leading teams to multiple places within the United States and internationally. The Ashpole’s have always had the desire to share the love of God with people through practical hands-on care.
We are committed to helping people who are victims of poverty, war, disease, or natural disaster. We accomplish this goal by sharing the love of God through practical hands on care. For example, we provide food, housing, clothing, medical needs, water and the gospel through volunteer teams around the world. We invite you to join us in bringing help and hope to hurting people – simply Volunteer or Donate to find out about our next Service Projects or where Financial Support is needed.
We have a broad range of contacts throughout the world that allow us to send teams of volunteers to assist those in need, regardless of race, religion or gender. We also partner with other international mission organizations to make our efforts as effective as possible. We invite you to become part of our network by clicking Contact today!
