WHAT WE DO
Hands Across the World is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization that provides free medical and surgical care annually to children and those in need in developing countries. Our dedicated team of surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, therapists and miscellaneous volunteers have given their time and skills to those who sincerely need it. No one receives pay for their services. It’s a true gift.
Our organization is funded entirely by donations. Donations typically consist of supplies and money, which are obtained from hospitals, businesses, and people like you. Thanks to the hard work of our volunteers, we keep very low administrative overhead costs, which allows us to ensure that more than 95% of all donations go directly to patient care. Stay tuned for more information about our 2016 spring fundraiser in Boston!
Hands Across the World is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, registered as such with the IRS. All donations are tax-deductible in accordance with IRS regulations. All donors will receive a letter that verifies their tax deductible contribution.
