Hand of Hope Volunteers

Ethiopia | November 2-11, 2018

Join us November 2-11, 2018 as we return to a country we dearly love and needs our help, Ethiopia. We will be working with one of our long time partners, Crisis Aid International in rural Ethiopia to provide medical and dental care to people in remote areas. You don't want to miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to be a part of this outreach!



A medical/dental clinic in this area is rare and the needs are tremendous. On this outreach we will help many of the sick and hurting who would otherwise go without much needed treatment. We will set up a general medical/dental clinic and treat patients' needs as they present. We will also pray with every patient and give them an opportunity to receive Christ. The team will be staying in a hotel based in the rural area.

More Information

If you have not filled out an application, please see below for the process.

If you have already been approved in the past for an outreach, your first step will be to submit an application to us before you put down a $300.00 non-refundable deposit.

The $300.00 non-refundable deposit is needed in order to secure your place on the team once your application has been approved. The deposit is placed toward your total trip cost. Upon acceptance to the Ethiopia team, we will provide you with the information to book your airline ticket. Hand of Hope will pre-select the team flight and we work closely with a travel agent who will coordinate the team’s itineraries. It is required to book your team travel through the travel agent we provide.

If you would like to stay longer than the scheduled outreach dates for your own leisure you are welcome to make those travel arrangements with the travel agent at the time of booking. You will be responsible for all of your own travel arrangements and hotel accommodations after November 11 when the team checks out of the hotel.
