Helping Hands Abroad

Some Helping Hands projects offer the opportunity to help abroad. Voluntary assignments for individuals are limited but may be possible in a few locations; please contact us for more details. Beyond that, Work & Witness Teams regularly visit different countries, usually for some type of construction work.

In the past, Work & Witness Teams from Germany (organized through the Church of the Nazarene Germany District, not Helping Hands) have visited the following countries:

2012 Sri Lanka, Badulla: construction of a ministry centre with child development centre
2010 Russia, Ulyanovsk: renovation of the church centre
2008 Madagascar, Morondava: work on church centre
2006 Madagascar, Nosy Be: playground for street kids centre, work on church centre
2005 Sri Lanka, Hatton: construction of a training and rehabilitation centre for tsunami victims (W&W team of the Gelnhausen church)
2004 Madagascar, Antananarivo: carpentry centre for young street kids, radio recording studio
2002 Mozambique, Maputo: work on church centre
2000 Mozambique, Maputo: work on Bible school building

In the Nineties, German teams also travelled to Kenya, South Africa (Kailidsha) and Zimbabwe (Bulawayo). The next team will visit Kenya in 2015.
