What we do

The boys in the Helping Hands Orphanage come from families that can’t meet their most basic needs for reasons out of their control.

The orphanage takes boys in and provides for their spiritual, physical, and educational needs so they can live a healthy, abundant life.

The boys are also provided training and education to enable them to find work when they are older and learn to serve their community.

Finally, the boys are equipped to become men of God who embrace His design for marriage, family, and church – and are trained to become leaders in their churches and families.

Loving, safe environment

At the Helping Hands Orphanage, children learn to build relationships and trust others.

Before coming to the orphanage many boys were on the streets, surviving the best they could. Now they have a safe place to stay, food to eat, and school – all while learning that God loves them and has a greater plan for their lives.

A few of our kids

Prior to staying in the orphanage, these boys were either living on the streets or in households that just simply couldn’t support them. Many have no living parents.

The orphanage is run through the Dominican Evangelical Church under Pastor Pedro Kery Johnson, director Yeudy Dandrades Cuello, and a committee made up of members of the church and community.

How you can help

First, pray for the boys and staff who serve at the center. God does amazing things when his people reach out to him. Our heart’s desire for each boy is found in Matthew 27:37, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” Please pray that this verse will ring true in each and every one of their lives. Please pray that each boy will know how much God loves and values them, and that God has a plan for each of their lives. Pray that God would bring people into their lives that would see them as God sees them: a precious child of God.

Second, prayerfully consider supporting the Helping Hands Orphanage financially. You can make a one time or monthly donation of any amount to help us provide for the needs of the boys living under our care in the orphanage. All donations go 100% to the orphanage. Any help from the US, is completely voluntary, and greatly appreciated.
