Why and How We Serve

Our organization helps thousands of people locally and those suffering in poverty around the world. Beyond the distribution of material goods, Helping Hands works to build community centers that provide stability for the surrounding areas. These serve as adult skill centers (Oasis Centers), that provide adults with a place to learn new skills, empowerment, hope, and spiritual renewal to women and children.

Ways in which the public can participate and get involved.








Helping Hands Thrift Stores are community thrift stores which provide resources for local churches, organizations, and missions. The stores are also a key funding mechanism for Helping Hands Ministries International and the work we do in Peru.

This Is Our Story

Helping Hands Ministries International is a nonprofit organization focused on making a difference in the nation of Peru and our local community. We accomplish our mission through the sale of donated goods at our thrift stores located in Washington State and through our valued supporters who believe in the mission of Helping Hands.

Peru Relief Update for March 29, 2017

Over 90 persons have lost their lives to the floods and another 100,000 are without homes. We are working with local authorities and organizations to deliver water to homes and villages and also supplying local residents of Victor Raul with drinking water from our well. Helping Hands through Amor en Acción continues to deliver water drums, “bidones”.

100% of your donations are being sent directly to our Amor en Acción office in Trujillo to purchase the highest priority items—water containers, non-perishable food, cooked meals and diapers.

Your continued prayers are needed during this critical period of thirst, hunger and standing water and dusty road generated diseases. You are making it possible for the people of Trujillo to be healthy and safe despite the surrounding catastrophe. Thank you!

Clean Drinking Water for the Community

Thanks to our amazing supporters and Port Gardner Rotary (led by our own Director of Operations, Jeffrey Hager), Victor Raul in Peru has its own water purifying pump that draws water from a Helping Hands built well. This is the first potable water source located in the community. Now the people don’t have to buy water from the government trucks that deliver it only once or twice each week, often at unfair prices. They can get water straight from the well anytime they need it – water tested by the City to be CLEAN and SAFE from parasites and bacteria. This is a rare gift for the local residents. They are grateful for your support and love, as are all the HHMI staff and volunteers.
