WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING...
charity Hands Across The Water was founded by Peter Baines after he
witnessed first hand the devastation and aftermath of the 2004
Boxing Day Tsunami. Originally tasked with housing 50 orphaned children
in the badly hit Baan Tharn Namchai region, Hands now provides homes and
education to more than 350 children throughout Thailand, whilst
continuing to support another 43 through university. The homes managed
by Hands are for children that have no other option in life, providing
them with a place to be loved, an education, and ulitmately when the
time comes to leave, a choice for their future.
The experiences Hands offer are the main fundraising source for these children, but they are also designed to enrich the lives of those who participate. Past participants have described their lives as being deepened and inescapably changed after completing this unforgetable journey. Hands also operates a social enterprise to cover all administration costs, which ensures that 100% of every dollar donated or fundraised goes directly to the children and projects in Thailand. So grab your boots and prepare for an experience that may change your outlook on life forever.
