Founded in 2008, Global Hand Charity's aim was to improve educational opportunities for children in Laos and Sri Lanka in remote regions. But we soon realised that children need the basics of fresh water and quality sanitation before they can learn. So we focused on building wells, toilets and showers near the schools before introducing educational programs.
Laos and Sri Lanka are among the poorest countries in the world. In the rural villages, there are no doctors or hospitals. Basic infections can result in death as people wait for medical assistance. Kids walk 4 hours in horrid conditions just to get to school. We save lives by funding community nurses and running free medical clinics in rural community centers, building schools, learning centers and dormitories.In addition, the donations we receive help fund specialist educational and medical programs, such as vision and hearing initiatives, that are not yet available in many parts of South East Asia.
