The Hanna Project is a not-for-profit organization established to demonstrate compassion to people suffering the ravages of war, poverty, disease, and disaster. Identifying and addressing human needs enables us to bring help, hope, and healing to many who thought no one cared.
Many people are trapped by poverty, oppression, politics, and war. Disease and injury are prevalent, education is inadequate or altogether non-existent, and basic health care is lacking. People need our help. Join us as we persist in reaching them with the help they desperately need.
Mission & Vision
The Hanna Project exists to bring help, hope, and healing to those in need around the world.
We focus on meeting practical needs and providing direct solutions to real problems to give hope for tomorrow.
Hear From Our Past THP Members!
People know us. We have developed a relationship with them and they want us to come back. Every time we’re there, we do some kind of community work for their city and they appreciate that and we’ve developed a good relationship with them.
I have been on trips to two countries in Central Asia and three trips to Cote d’Iviore, Africa. Each one has been a little different but some things are common. Learn culture differences. Enjoy laughs when you don’t pour tea correctly or when you say “good evening” in your new language and it is morning. Meet instant friends. Not only are your new team mates friends, those you are working along side on the project will quickly become friends. Some for a lifetime. You look forward to seeing them each time you go back. Some have internet capability occasionally and keep in contact throughout the year. The most meaningful experiences are helping someone who would not otherwise be able to accomplish the work or it would be much more difficult without the Hanna Project’s help.
THP Central Asia and THP Ivory Coast
It was my first time traveling outside the US. I had attempted to be part of a short-term humanitarian trip for years, willing to go anywhere. Major life changers (like having a baby) would change the plan every time. I began to think that serving as a nurse in a resource-poor area outside my own country would not happen. I did not know why I would have this desire, if not to act on it. Finally, in 2018, my husband and I were able to go to Ecuador with THP, and nothing stood in our way. While there, my husband and the construction team were able to build an awning to shelter the school children at Antioch Academy from the daily rains and intense sun when they walked to classes. The medical team and I, along with interpreters with JKC, were able to treat and provide relief to approximately 300 underserved in the local villages.
"I can't say enough good things about THP. They value the well-being of team members. Their commitment to hard work and genuinely helping people is what keeps me coming back."
