What is Helping Hands?

Helping Hands is a program of Catholic Relief Services. The purpose of the program is twofold: (1) to provide short term relief to the hungry in the West African country of Burkina Faso and (2) to raise money to support longer term poverty alleviation programs in that area.

If you are interested in helping to organize Helping Hands 2019, please contact Levi at cyacc1@gmail.com or
