About Us

Lifting Hands International is a scrappy, dynamic nonprofit with a strong brand and a number of successful, refugee-focused projects in several locations around the globe. Less than three years old, LHI’s mission to help refugees at home and abroad has resonated powerfully with donors and volunteers who have powered the rapid growth and expansion of the organization.


Refugees we serve include: Syrian bedouins living in the Jordan desert, hoping to one day return home; Yazidi survivors of ISIS genocide in Iraq, anxiously awaiting resettlement in a more peaceful land; Rohingya minorities in Bangladesh, also fleeing genocide, and now living in desperate deprivation; and refugees from around the globe just arriving in the United States, working hard to forge a new life in a foreign nation. The needs of these populations vary widely. For some, clothing and diapers and basic provisions are the most pressing concerns. Others are thirsting for education or for psycho-social support. Some ask us for livestock to replace flocks lost in war. Others seek only a hot meal for their kids.
