"Personal Development, develop self-esteem, spiritual growth, self-confidence, feelings of self-worth and improve your sense of purpose and fulfillment." Blondine
The benefits of service: Develop self-esteem, self-confidence, feelings of self-worth and improve your sense of purpose and fulfillment. Researchers at the London School of Economics studied the level of “happiness” among those who volunteer, and found that the more people served others, the happier they were. Volunteering can be overwhelming, expensive, but very beneficial. When we share our talents, skills and resources, we feel more connected to others, and we become less absorbed. We develop friendships with like-minded people of common interests. Studies show that volunteering decreases the sense of loss and increases a sense of purpose. At HHB our volunteer has reported, “We’ve received true life changing satisfaction by sharing our own personal resources and celebrating the small differences.”

HOW ABOUT YOU JOIN US ON A MISSION TRIP & COME BE PART OF THE TEAM!
The medical mission need is tremendous, from small scratches to labor to broken bones and more, we see it all. Skills in the medical field are beyond ever so helpful. From rough grounds to natural disasters, aliments are abundant, and so is the need to service and help. We never know what type of aide is needed, but we go ready to service. In Haiti, our Clinique Helping Hands on the grounds, in the Miragoane community and its surrounding neighborhoods really is ideal during times of much need, and more hands to provide even more aide is always a blessing.
Out in the mission field we help communities build various forms of structure, sometimes during difficult times. Programs help in various areas and they are for all ages of the population. From Sports Camps and Youth Programs, to Education, Health, Nutrition, Hygiene and Safety classes. We also have Music, Art and Wellness classes, Mobile Meals and Services, Etc. All these things and more are essential for positive life impact and growth. We apply them where we can. If there's a need, there's a way.
We always have some form of distribution going on, whether it's food, medical aide, mobile services, hygienic essentials and more. We plan our days and do what we need to do. From serving meals plate to plate or door to door, organizing the medicine cabinet or toiletries for inventory or organizing a small community event or a day trip. There is always something to plan. Sometimes we need to do repairs, one brick at a time, as a team, we get it done.
Youth enrichment camp, offering sports, arts and crafts, music, dance, field trips, life skills, personal growth, and team/esteem-building activities to boys & girls ages 5 to 15 years old.
A social, educational and recreational outlet for the community and its surroundings. Cleats, shin guards, socks, goalie gloves, goalie jerseys, practice jerseys, shorts, sneakers and soccer balls are collected and donated.
Working in a partnership with local officials, medical professionals, churches and schools; our medical program offers medical treatment to most of whom have never seen a doctor, especially those of underprivileged areas.
"We rose with the sun, hiked into sunrise, spent our days taking vitals and prescribing medicine – in some cases, performing minor surgeries with the help of the volunteer doctors – and the evenings sharing stories and wisdom with Lala, Lovely, Jojo and other local family and friends who made our stay in Haiti so welcoming."
With an outpouring of experiences, Raphael decided why not put it all in a tell all book! Our volunteers had so much to share, you are not gonna wanna put it down. It's simply a beautiful collection of awesome stories and memories worth sharing and it all goes to help those in need.
