Hands Extended International’s work in Belize seeks to connect abilities and resources with the various needs in the Belizean society. Through leadership training, and programs that work with prisons, pre-schools, medical clinics and local organizations, we are making a difference. Annually, Hands Extended International takes a team of trained workers to Belize to provide in these various areas. Our work in Belize not only meets needs in that society, but is an avenue for us to train others in humanitarian work. Our desire in the years to come is to make a greater impact in the country of Belize and to see a growing force of people with a passion and ability to meet needs in the world community.
HEI works with a Christian Arab Palestinian Church to help fund children’s outreaches in Jerusalem and throughout the West Bank and to assist that fellowship with other ongoing expenses and programs. We are helping to support a children’s drama team that travels throughout the Israel/Palestinian territory. Using the tool of drama and also having fun camps for kids, we are teaching the children how to treat and respect others as they would like to be treated and respected themselves. We are also teaching other important interpersonal life skills to help tear down the walls of hostility that separate the various groups that years of offense and hatred have built.
HEI recently began working to provide relief to refugees in the Northern Iraq area who have been internally displaced, to help provide trauma counseling to women who have been rescued from slavery and to help establish an orphanage for children who have been left orphaned due to the victimization of terrorism.
As Hands Extended International strives to meet needs in the world community, it is working diligently in Afghanistan to create new avenues for the disabled, women and others with little opportunity to become contributing members of Afghan society. To make these new roads of opportunity, we desire to develop more schools for the deaf and women’s centers in strategic locations throughout Afghanistan. Our plan of providing education and job skills training combined with employment opportunities is our way of meeting the needs of the underprivileged in Afghanistan.
