There are so many ways to help HUGS 


Would you volunteer to assist in one of our major fundraising events or travel on a mission overseas?  



Do you have a special skill to make our gala fundraiser even better? Are you an artist who can donate works to our annual auction? Are you a skilled medical professional willing to travel to make a difference? 



We are looking for both financial donations and the donations of medical equipment and supplies. These missions would not be possible without the generosity of others.

Small funding
makes a
big difference.

In the United States, surgery for a procedure such as microtia can cost around $40,000 per child.  For the same amount, we can help nearly sixty children in Ecuador. 


Dontions to HUGS go directly to making missions happen. Our mission teams are completely made up of volunteers.  


HUGS provides free surgery to children who need it most. Your dollars go directly to providing critically needed medical supplies, equipment and surgical expenses.
