About Nepal

Helping Hands International had the amazing opportunity to partner with locals during the Summer of 2019 who were looking to make a huge difference in their community.  We were able to build a community center six hours outside the capital of Kathmandu in the mountains of Sulsing. It was a long journey up into the hills but we eventually reached the facility at 7,500 feet and Trekkers Lodge accommodations was at nearly 9,000 ft in elevation. In 2020, we are planning to return to the area to offer a free dental clinic and continue sharing the loving of Jesus with locals.
