This week Helping Hand welcomes Hawaii International Child, also known as Adoption Hawaii, committed to helping orphaned children find permanent families, and offering services including helping prospective parents and supporting those who are pregnant and considering the option of adoption. HPR All Things Considered Host Dave Lawrence speaks with Executive Director and CEO of Hawai‘i International Child, Kristine Altwies.

Helping Hand is a weekly feature airing statewide on HPR1 stations each Friday as part of our afternoon drive broadcast of All Things Considered, and then appearing online here, where all of our Helping Hand segments and resources are archived online. Every week, Helping Hand puts the spotlight on an organization, topic or event that offers assistance to the disabled and others among the most vulnerable.
