SERVING PEOPLE LOCALLY AND GLOBALLY SINCE 1992
Hands of Hope NW has shipped around 136 forty-foot containers of quality medical equipment and supplies worldwide since 1992, starting with a small pallet for Papua New Guinea to 8-10 containers each year.
We've shipped almost 100 smaller shipments, and sent valuable medical supplies on over 270 mission trips.
Our supporters have helped medical clinics, hospitals, and birth centers provide quality healthcare in 77 countries.
With our equipment and supplies, field partners have saved babies' lives in Manila clinics, given mobility to the disabled in Guatemala, and used our protective gear to fight Ebola in Sierra Leone. More recently, we have helped Syrians with medical needs in refugee camps.
Locally, we loan out durable medical equipment to area residents after surgery and to the elderly. Each year we loan equipment to around 1,000 families and have over 800 items in use in the community at any time. We also equip local non-profits like the Boise Rescue Mission and the Nampa Terry Reilly medical clinic.
