Changing lives one child at a time …

We are funded entirely by donations. Every single gift, no matter how large or small, makes a life-changing impact because we keep administrative overhead costs to a bare minimum.
This allows us to ensure that more than 95% of all donations go directly to patient care.


No one in our organization or any volunteers receive payment for their services or time. This allows us to ensure that all money given to us directly serves our patients. Donations pay for volunteer travel, medical supplies, shipping, and any necessary permits and/or fees. Only 1% of funds go to marketing programs such as maintaining our web site or raising fundraiser awareness. To date, most of our participating surgeons still pay their own way on a mission, to further give to this cause.

Hands Across the World is truly unique in this way!


You can make a true impact and change a child’s life with your donation!

$275.00 = surgery for one child
$550 = surgeries for two children
$1,000 = cost to send one volunteer on a mission for 10 days (room, board, airfare)

Consider a monthly donation!

We are a 501 (c)(3) organization, tax ID # 20-3813940. Donations are tax deductible.
