Hand in Hand USA perseveres to extend all possible help during times of natural disasters, supporting programs that have helped earthquake survivors in Haiti, flood victims in India and Pakistan, survivors of devastating fires in rural India, and more.

Hand In Hand USA is devoted to serving the cause for humanitarian needs. We realize our constraints, being a small organization with limited resources, and hence we stay true to our primary focus of serving the orphans and poor in India but at the same time we try to do our utmost for the suffering humanity elsewhere as serving the cause for humanity should go beyond any consideration of geographical boundaries, caste, creed, race, color, language or religion.

In 2011 Hand in Hand USA along with its affiliated organization, Prajnana Mission in India, embarked on a massive relief effort to help the flood victims of Orissa, India. Number of flood relief camps were organized in remote areas of Orissa state from where dry food and cow feed were supplied to the flood affected people.
