This years Hands for Hope annual Walk-A-Thon will be held on Saturday 05 April 2014, a tradition since 2003. All proceeds from this fundraising event are allocated to H4H Corrective Surgery Program.
Every step we take on this walk and every dollar we raise, will help a child in Vietnam to discover the possibilities of walking, moving about on their own, and overcoming the disabilities most of them have known since birth.
Hands for Hope aims to complete 100 surgery cases annually at the cost of $300/case from the fund raised from the our annual Walk-A-Thon.
H4H Corrective Surgery Program
Aim: To assist poor children in remote parts of Vietnam, who are living with physical disabilities which take away their self-reliance and prevent them from being able to fully participate in the community around them. The program coordinates and funds the necessary surgery and rehabilitation required to correct or alleviate their disabilities.
To date H4H has completed over 1,350 surgery cases.
