The mission of Helping Hands working out of Garland, Texas, is to provide food, shelter, clothing, education, and medical care to area homeless and destitute children and their families, everywhere regardless of culture or creed.

It is seeking support for the construction and development of the first of eight community/charity centers to be built around the world. Eight countries have been identified as having the greatest need of aid based on the number of children who are homeless, orphaned, and neglected. The first Helping Hands centers will be built in Wardha and Madoor ( A.P) in India and in Kurunegala, Sri Lanka.

The current priority of Helping Hands is to build a local multi-cultural center that will build bridges for understanding between youth of all cultures. The organization will assist these children by

* Providing kind and compassionate care

* Restoring their natural dignity and respectability

* Encouraging their inherent productive individuality, creating within them a sense of pride and a love for life and learning

All services at the multi-cultural center will be completely free of charge.

Among the many countries that are represented at the Helping Hands Center at Garland are India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Japan, Korea, Vietnam, Philippines, Australia, Canada, Germany, Italy, Spain, Romania, Portugal, Peru, Nicaragua, Kenya, South Africa, Honduras, Turkey, Hungary, Honduras, Mexico, Mauritius, Syria, Brazil, Egypt, Ethiopia, Somalia, Ecuador, Zambia, Nigeria and Armenia,

Helping Hands Founder President Sri Lankan-born Kausha Siriwardena appeals to assist the organization with the mission of bettering the lives of children by taking up one of Helping Hands levels of sponsorship to bring this important project to fruition. The monies raised will go directly to fund the multi-cultural center and the youth and family programs it will house.
