If you are uncertain about which program you would like to support, consider donating to our Lifting Hands Greatest Need program.

Contributions to LHI’s Greatest Need program will be put to use where funds are needed most at the given moment. This general support is vital from an operational standpoint, enabling us to react quickly as new needs arise, in addition to growing and maintaining our high-impact projects around the world.



Aid shipments to our southern border help families who are in the US legally petitioning for asylum after fleeing atrocities in their Central American home countries.

Our warehouse in American Fork, Utah collects, sorts, packs, and ships aid to refugee camps in Jordan, Lebanon, Somalia, Bangladesh, and other areas of the world.

We distribute goats to Syrian refugee families in Jordan, who feed their children with goat milk and regaining hope as they start back down the path of economic security.


Our Refugee Center, located 100 meters from the Serres Refugee Camps in Greece, offers female- and child-friendly spaces, classes on language, fitness, music, and more.

On the Greek island of Chios, we partner with NGOs like the Chios People’s Kitchen to provide warm meals prepared by refugee chefs to vulnerable refugee populations.

Our Welcome program provides refugees in the US with resettlement assistance and basic supplies like appliances, helping them save their one-time stipend for other needs.

Lifting Hands International guarantees that all donations will go towards helping refugees. Our annual overhead expenditures have always remained below 10%. In the field of refugee assistance, however, new needs can emerge and circumstances in the field can change rapidly. Consequently, funds may occasionally need to be redirected to programs other than those for which they were designated.
